Not interested in running but would love to donate and receive a t-shirt?  This year we are adding registration for ghost runners.  You can be a ghost runner by completing your registration by March 1, 2017.  This means you will not be actually running the race but will be donating to the event.  In appreciation of your donation, you will receive a t-shirt. Please select your t-shirt size under Ghost Runner in the Giveaway section of the registration.  Please note: All t-shirts must be picked up on site by the ghost runner on the day of the event.  If you do not pick up your t-shirt on race day, they will be available for pick-up only by contacting Carolynn DeSandre at carolynn.desandre@ung.edu.  We will not be able to mail any t-shirts for any registrants.
