Our racing mission continues to be to produce affordable, hedonistically fun & athletically competitive races, that are technically sound (correctly-measured courses with minimum turns and visible distance mile or Km markers), that also benefit some charity(-ies) with a populist & gender parity focus for the average runner/walker (including the novices) and also for the seasoned, serious racer. ***You ve done the 5K (3.107 mls.); maybe the 10K (6.214 mls.) also; perhaps, even the 15K (9.321 mls.) but the full Marathon may be an impossible dream away The 20K (12.428 mls.) or the Half (13.107 mls.) may be a bit too far also...Plus, you ve yearned to do a double-digit mile race.
