A weather forecast of sleet at race time with possible snow and high winds, which would make it impossible to erect the heated registration and post-party tents, has made it necessary to postpone the race for Sunday, March 22. No problem! More time to enjoy ourselves!

While we are so sorry for this change, we believe safety must come first and we want the best experience for runners and their cheering sections.

ONLINE REGISTRATION EXTENDED THROUGH MARCH 19!
