Can I ruck the race?
Absolutely, but only if you bring ACRT for the race director.
What if it Rains?!
Both events will be held “Rain or Shine”.
We encourage everyone to arrive early. Day-of registration begins at 0630. Day-of registration will close at 730. For pre-registrants, please arrive no later than 7:45 to pick up your race packet and awesome event t-shirt.

I've never finished a run/walk this far...
No problem! We love encouraging first runners and walkers to their first 5 or 10K finish! We have a facebook event page that gives out guidance weekly on how to prepare: https://www.facebook.com/events/387813831334668/?ref=2
