This is also the first year the race will be implementing time chips, so that all runners will have the opportunity to know their exact times.

We are offering cash prizes for men and women for breaking the course record, as well as cash prizes for different age categories. The raffle and party following the event are going to be memorable, so be sure to stick around after the race! To top it all off, the proceeds go to benefit a truly worthy cause, the South County Special Olympics. With events like these, everyone who participates is a winner.” said Dan Rubino, Owner.
