Awards will be given to the top three male and female runners and the top five runners with dogs regardless of gender. A special award will be given to the 1st First Responder to cross the line in uniform. Age group awards will be given out at 10 year intervals. All participants will receive a finisher medal. The race begins in front of the amphitheater on Main Street and runs west to conclude in the amphitheater. It is a dog friendly event for a good cause and should not be missed.
