The race will be professionally timed and will take place on a T.A.C. certified flat fast course. Participants will receive race t-shirts, and snacks and beverages will be provided.
Prizes will be awarded by age group to participants who finish in first, second, and third place. There will be split timers on the track to allow participants to time themselves.
