Spring is around the corner and this race is now open for your running calendar. Early registration ends on March 30, 2019, so it’s important to sign up soon. The race is run on the beautiful (soft dirt ground) trails at Sandy Bottom Nature Park. It is a flat, out and back course. Dogs and strollers are permitted but we ask that you start in the back of the pack and that they not go through the finish line chute.
