The FEW (Modern Rock with a Classic Rock Test) will be playing 8:00pm - 10:00 pm on the stage in our celebration area.  Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and settle in for the show. 





Grab 'n Go snack bags will be given to runners at the finish line.

​We had such an overwhelming response to our Food Truck last year, we're bringing two this year!  Stick around for dinner while you enjoy the music.

Smitty's was at our 2023 race - YUM!



Flying Dog is once again sponsoring the event and we are very grateful for their support.
