Half Marathon SOLD OUT!

Due to facility and safety concerns we had to put a cap on this years race.  As of 9/4/2020 We have reached that CAP in the Half Marathon but we spots available in the 5K.   

With all the uncertainty going on these days people are asking a lot of questions regarding our race.  Here are the answers to some of the questions.

Is this race really going to happen?  We are putting our most sincere effort into making this race happen.  We feel that all our precautions and additional steps are in compliance with local health department orders and recommendations.  If the county orders get more strict then that may force us to cancel the race.  

Will your race go virtual due to COVID?  No, we are as tired of virtual races as you are!  If we cancel the race due to COVID you will get your money back. Please register online to make that easier for us.

If I sign up after the T-Shirt deadline, will there be extra shirts ordered up?  No, we are not ordering ANY extra shirts this year.  If you want a shirt then make sure we receive your registration BEFORE September 5th.  

Will you still have water stops on the course? Yes we will have water stops, but we will only have 4 of them, located at miles 2, 5, 8, and 11.  We will be handing out 12oz bottles of water at those stops.  We encourage everyone to bring a handheld to hold water and/or be prepared to carry the 12oz bottle to the next water stop or trash can located along the course. We will not have any endurance/electrolyte drinks or food available at the stops.

Are there any other changes to the course?  The half marathon course is the same course that has been in place for the past 6 years.  We will adjust the start / finish area to allow for greater social distancing at the start.  The 5K course is new and is USATF Certified.  Check out the course maps on your right.

I love the post-race party.  What about that?  Unfortunately, we are asking that all participants gather their post-race food & water, and then to please disperse to their cars.  We cannot allow large congregations of people.


When will I get my division award?  Awards for the half marathon will be mailed.  Our 5K will honor the Overall Male and Female.  Rather than awarding medals by division, we have a surprise twist to rating the 5K finishers this year.


What else?  There will be a pre-race email sent to all registered participants, outlining the above procedures and any changes.  Sign up NOW, get training, and be watching for the email!
