COURSES 10K USATF Certified Course # FL13009EBM
5K USATF Certified Course # FL13008EBM
The purpose of the USATF course certification program is to produce road race courses of accurately measured distances. For any road running performance to be accepted as a record or be nationally ranked, it must be run on a USATF-certified course. In addition, the certification program is very important to the average road racer, as well as those of exceptional speed. Most runners like to compare performances run on different courses, and such comparisons are difficult if course distances are not reliable. No one can truly establish a personal best if the course distance is not accurate.
AMENITIES Beautiful and unique shirt, finisher's medal, goody bag, and post-race refreshments. Availability and size of shirts are only guaranteed to those who register by April 12, 2020. Our goody bags are unlike any other race. Free cabbage and potatoes to all registrants!
