.USATF Sanctioned Our Cause
: For strong families. Families that run together stay together. Bring your whole family to the race. Those who run can run, those who do not can cheer, meet new friends, and help with the race. Compared to your average race with an entry fee of $20, even a low income family of 5 can now afford it. Kids older than 7 can be trained to run 5 miles. They do that in Kenya just to get to school. So away with school bus, and let's raise our own Kenyans - bring your whole family to the race.Registration: http://fastrunningblog.com/reg/race_reg.php?race_id=139

However, we will ask you to go online ASAP after you finish the race, post-register, and enter the bib you've run with. This will guarantee that your time will appear in the race results.Course:

What's the catch? We keep it simple. Essentials do not cost, it is the frills that do. We stick to the essentials and will add the frills as we grow. But not at the expense of the runners budget.
