    Currently, the plan is to offer both an in person race and a virtual race. If there is a need to make the event entirely virtual due to CDC guidelines and state executive orders, all participants will be converted to virtual registrations. We will use email as our main form of communication for any changes to the event day. Please make sure you register with an email address to get the most up to date information regarding race day. 

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
