There will be one water station around the half-way point. Races will be held rain or shine. No headsets, in-line skates, bikes, strollers, or pets are allowed.

Event Proceeds

This race is being held to encourage active habits for our community. Any profits will fund the purchase of recreational equipment at Glebe Elementary.


Transponder timing provided by Amazing Race Timing will be used to score the race. The system uses the Chronotrack B-Tag which is attached to each runner's bib and records the exact time a runner crosses the starting line and the finish line, resulting in a net time for each runner. The B-Tag is disposable and has very accurate results.
