The Half Marathon Course:
The 10k Course:

To follow the course, it is easiest to view it on a computer.  Place your cursor over the elevation line (below the map) and there will be a marker on the map that will move along the race course.
I am excited to see everyone out on the course!

 There will be 2 water stations on the 10k course that you will pass twice.  There will be 4 water stations on the half marathon course that you will also pass twice each.

There is a GREAT park with play structures at the start / finish for the kids and lots of good finish line food. Stick around after the race for a FABULOUS raffle!
Cost: $10 PLUS 2 Cans of FOOD until October 1st. $20 PLUS 2 Cans of FOOD October 2nd thru Race Day. Food Benefits the MARANA FOOD BANK – Thanks!
The course is stroller friendly, although we ask athletes with strollers to start in the back. No bikes allowed on the course.

What do I get when - I mean if - I win?
You get the feeling of satisfaction that comes with a job well done. This event has NO OFFICIAL TIMING. It is a grassroots event aimed at getting athletes in to running in a non-competitive race environment. I have no idea what the course record is and there are NO PRIZES for winning your age group..but we have an AWESOME raffle!
Please note: The raffle will begin when the final finisher crosses the line.
Do you have a Kids Race?!

Ages 3-4 will run ¼ mi, Ages 5-8 will run ½ mi, and Ages 9-12 will run 1 mi.
Fun awards for all participants! Kids Race begins promptly at 10:30am.
