*Register by August 25 to 100% ensure that you receive your "Boogie On The Boulevard" 1 mile or 5K finisher's medal. We must order our medals by that date and we need a good estimate of how many we need to order. Of course we are going to order extra medals and it is our intent that everyone that participates receive a medal. But once we order the medals we can't place another order for just a few. I really expect a flood of people registering later simply because this is going to be such a good event. I would hate to see anyone left out. So please, if you intend to participate in this event, please, please, please register as early as you possibly can and save us a few gray hair.
