The Story:


Two weeks before Thanksgiving in 2011 we decided that we wanted to give back to all the participants who came out to race with us over the course of the year. Thanksgiving morning seemed to be the perfect time, and giving them a FREE race would be the perfect way to say thanks. We're continuing that tradition...If you've crossed under our finish line in any race from Dec. 1, 2016 - Nov. 25, 2017 you've earned yourself a FREE spot in any of the races.


If you haven't crossed under our finish line this year...that's OK too...You can still come out and join us...it's just $17.

**Please arrive early enough before the race to sign in or register.

We don't want the race to start without you!  Packet pickup and registration will END at 7:50.
