Yes! You will NOT get a FREE t-shirt if you register on Race Day. You must pre-register in order to get a FREE  t-shirt. T-shirts will not be for sale the day of the race. A limited amount of timing chips will be available on race day, so if we run out, you may not get timed.

Racers 10-17 can run with a parent in the parent/child division with a signed release form.
