Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, we will be hosting a "hybrid" race this year. We will still offer the in-person race on September 5, 2020 at 8am, but we will also allow for runners to "Race at Your Place". At the in-person race, runners will be released in waves to properly social distance. Chip timing is available to precisely measure your race results by registering your race chip as you run under the starting line structure and likewise ends as you cross the finish line. Race at Your Place runners can participate (or just support!) at their homes or their favorite running route. You can download the app (see right side of this page) to measure, time and upload your virtual race results. Both race runners and Race at Your Place runners will receive a race t-shirt!
