Registration will take place at the starting line at 7:30 a.m. and cost $20. The race is limited to the first 300 runners.

The race will start at 9 a.m. Seniors will be first to take off at the starting line, then the younger runners will start the race 20 minutes after.

After the race there will be an award ceremony and cookies for all participants at the end of the race, that is if grandma doesn't beat you to them.
