There is no walk-up registration. There is no race day registration. Once registration closes online [15 Feb], that’s it. This cutoff is required in order to allow each club to perform a final review and validation of their runner’s roster, and provide time for reach-out ahead of the scoring team preparing systems and bibs for race morning PPU.
Registration Fee: $13 (Please note that most clubs partially or fully sponsor their runners for this event. Race is limited to first 1000 runners and routinely sells out prior to race day. )
