Online registration costs $25 per person or $20 per person for groups of four or more. Registration the day of the event costs $30 per person or $25 per person for groups of four or more.
Participants will need check in at Lake Boren Park between 7 and 8:30 a.m. Saturday. After the race, the course will close at 10:30 a.m.
The 3.1-mile route is the same as last year, starting and ending in the park. Participants will be divided into different categories by age, and the top three male and female finishers in each category will receive medals. All participants will receive T-shirts.
