The fairgrounds will be a great spectator area as well with grassy areas to sit and rest while runners come in.


Our volunteers are the best primarily due to them being runners themselves or family of runners and they know what a runner needs. It is not just about handing out water but the attitude of the volunteers that make a huge difference at our races. A motivated volunteer makes for a faster racer on the course. We do an awesome volunteer program. If you volunteer for one of our races we give you a $50 credit towards a future race within 13 months of the race you volunteered. If you choose to volunteer fill in the form. After the race please fill in the redemption form to claim your credit. Without the redemption form we will not know what race to give you credit.
