We will be timing the kids 1mi race and giving awards to the top 3 finishers for this event. It is vital that children be registered online in advance so that we can have the correct number of bibs with timing chips. Please note that the kids 1mi fun run is still offered at no cost, we simply ask that you bring a nonperishable food donation for the local food pantry.
PLEASE CHECK EXPIRATION DATES ON ALL DONATIONS!
LADIES SHIRTS TEND TO RUN SMALL. You might want to consider ordering a size larger than you would normally wear, or ordering a men's shirt. The only difference is the men's cut is a bit more generous and less tailored in the shoulder and bust area.
Shirts will be guaranteed for ALL participants that register before August 27, 2021. After that date, we will do our best to accommodate with sizing and availability. There will be additional shirts available to purchase at $15.00 each. Cash or check only. Will not be able to accept credit cards at the event.
All runners that cross the finish line will receive a finishers medal. All kids participating in the 1mi Kids Fun Run will receive a ribbon as they cross the finish line.
