  • THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR DEFERRALS.  We appreciate your understanding with our policies as a non-profit, volunteer led race, we have to balance our policies with what we can reliably provide for our runners.

Packet pick up will end at 8:15am race morning so don't be late.  PLEASE NOTE THIS IT NOT AT THE START AREA, it is about a 3-5 min walk from the start area.
  • For the virtual races, you MUST pick up your goodies at Packet Pickup as above or on Race Day.  If you are only doing virtual and want your goodies mailed to you then pick the shipping option (an additional charge will apply) and your packet will be sent to you 1-2 weeks after the conclusion of the virtual race window


  • Timing will be by chip.  There will be mats for timing at the start and finish.  Awards will be based on GUN time (not chip time-chip time is your official time). 
  • Every Finisher will receive a finisher medal--they will be different than last year and all 3 race medals will fit together in a unique way, so you can do all three distances and it will be cool! 
  • There will be two aid stations on the course --one around mile 3 and one after mile 6 and 10 (same one you pass twice). 
  • The course will be about the same as last year so checkout the course maps below-it is not a flat course.

  • The running group will be meeting on Saturday mornings at 6:45am (running by 7am) at the Wake Up Call Coffee (formerly Black Rock Coffee, formerly Roasters) on George Washington Way in Richland.  We ask that you park down in Howard Amon parking to not overwhelm Roasters parking lot.  All levels are welcome, we will be running the distance that is listed on the training plans but often others are running more or less.  Experienced runners are encouraged to attend to help mentor those who are new to our beloved sport..
