About This Activity

What's New?

We still have the same fast 4 mile course as last year and a fast 1 mile certified course.  Race shirts this year will be sleeveless shirts. Finisher medals will be given to all racers who finish this year.  If you or somebody you know would like to volunteer, let the race director know. The races are chip-timed by the experienced crew of GoRace Timing.

Kids pricing is $10.00 less during signup.

4 Mile Race

The Four Mile Race will begin promptly at 7:30 a.m. It is open to all ages and abilities, including runners and walkers. Veterans will be recognized before the start of the 4 Mile Race.

1 Mile Race

The One Mile Race will follow the Four Mile Race at approximately 8:30 a.m. It is open to all ages and abilities, including runners and walkers.

Aid Station Refreshments

An aid station will be at the 2-mile mark of the 4-mile race. Post race refreshments for both races will include bottled water, soda, fresh fruit including watermelon and homemade cookies from the kitchens of the expert bakers in our running club.
