*****Possible course changes for 2009.  Come out and see the new twists and turns!!!*****



New for 2009, all pre-registered runners will receive their race day gear in a reusable shopping bag.  We opted to get these this year as a non-plastic option for the environment, and as a great reusable gift for racers!



Also, please check out our  sponsor page.  We have a ton of great sponsors this year, and they need your support!!!
