At previous races, some people said that they didn't like it when the faster runners weaved their way through the crowds on the loop course, so we decided to change things up and put in a Prize Money Race first. So, if you know anyone who can run under 24:00 minutes for 3.1 miles, send 'em to the starting line at 7:45 for a chance to make some cash.
Q. I don't want to run the Prize Money race. Will there be age group awards in the Women's Open Race? A. Yes, there will be age group prizes in the Women's Open Race for the top three in 10-year age groups (under 20, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, and 80+, with prizes from La Encantada merchants and wine glass to age group winners
