the homeless shelters we're supporting
All races start and finish at
the pavilion at the W.S. Carpenter Rec. Area of White Clay Creek State
These courses are not USATF certified, but we re-measured 'em on 4/9/06 and they're at least the distance we advertise.
There is race-day registration for all races, but we will run out of shirts early.
This event happens rain or shine; 2003 and 2005 were mudbaths--be prepared for anything!
What's new for 2008: PARKING FEES!. We raised some of the registration fees to cover the cost of parking passes for on-line registrants.
SHOW YOUR ACTIVE.COM RECEIPT AND WE'LL GIVE YOU A PASS. Otherwise it's $6/out-of-state or $3/DE vehicle.
