Post-Race Refreshments 

Carrying on the tradition of previous races, 2020 will feature a plentiful post-race buffet. 


The ChronoTrack timing system will be used to score the race. The system uses a B-tag, which records the exact time a runner crosses the starting line as well as the finish line, resulting in a net, or "Chip" time for each runner. Overall awards will be based on the "clock time," and age group awards will be based on "Chip" time.

Water Stations 

In addition to water at the start/finish, water will be available on the course just past the half-way point. 


Plenty of Free Parking will be available in adjacent lots. 

Volunteer Opportunities 

Join in the fun as an event volunteer! This event relies on 50+ volunteers to be successful and we need YOUR help. Volunteer jobs include water station, race buffet registration area, or course marshals on race day. We will also need volunteers at packet pick up. 


Sponsorship opportunities are still available.  Please contact Josh Isaacs at  for more information.
