Event details and schedule
Race starts at 8am. We know this is a late start, but we rely on our community volunteers to help us man the course and this allows for the maximum amount of participation from our partners. Plus it gives the weather a little time to warm up.
You can arrive as early as you want and there is FREE parking along Church Street and in the local church parking lots. Please do not park on bank street.
The race course time limit is 4 hours, as they children's parade will need to begin.
