Will available at Ritchies Sporting Goods after the race. Remember the last person to finish may be the best predictor!
Awards to the runner closest to his/her predicted time; not always to the fastest overall runners. Awards will go as deep as the prize pile. Great Prizes!
NOTE # 1: This is entirely an outdoor event! It's February in Ohio folks! Dress and plan accordingly! We have plenty of great snacks to fuel you afterward, but remember the best place to wait for that last finisher and awards to be determined may be your own vehicle. We'll make sure to loudly announce when it's time to give the awards.
NOTE # 2: In the event of a snow emergency or dangerous weather conditions, the race will be canceled and arrangements will be made for entrants to pick up hats. If the weather gets serious, please check www.summitathletic.com for any last minute race information.
