ABOUT

In this unique race, participants get to choose either the 10-mile, 15-mile, or 20-mile distance not only when they register, but mid-race as well!

 

That's right, register once, and on race day, if you want to run a different distance, you can!  Finish the 10-mile and get an event-branded fleece blanket.  Complete the 15-mile and add a pair of gloves to the blanket.  Finally, if you finish the 20-mile distance you get an additional item; a neck gaiter.   

Join us afterward at the North Park Rose Barn across the street from the finish for a terrific post-race meal and party.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Pick up your blanket with your bib either at packet pick up or race morning.  To get the gloves and/or neck gaiter, you have to first finish the appropriate distance, then travel up to the Rose Barn to claim your items.

PARKING AND SHUTTLES

ARRIVE EARLY! ARRIVE EARLY! - FYI, this means about 1 to 1-1/2 hours ahead, as it takes a long time to move close to 500+ runners and spectators.

 

CARPOOL! CARPOOL! CARPOOL! - Even using the outlying larger lots, we still request that participants carpool to help minimize traffic congestion and delays for the buses.

 

Shuttles pick-up points will have designated signs to show where to line up and two shuttles will rotate around the below parking locations from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM and then from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM 

 

1. ROSE BARN (120 spots) *this will fill early!*

2. NORTH PARK ICE RINK (180 spots)

3. SPILLWAY on Babcock/Pearce Mill RD. (150 spots)

4. North Park Swimming Pool (400 spots--and farthest away)

 

Parking along Pierce Mill, especially in front of the Boathouse and Rose Barn is not allowed as it interferes with the safety of and delays the shuttle buses. PLEASE obey any posted no parking signs.

 

We highly stress the need to, arrive early, carpool, and use the shuttle buses to arrive at the Boathouse or simply park at one of the outlying lots and walk to the Boathouse. The walk will loosen your legs from the drive and prepare your muscles to perform their best!

 

SPECIAL NOTE:

No parking will be allowed in the Over The Bar (OTB) lot across from the Boathouse. This is reserved for patrons of the restaurant. We want to be good neighbors.

   

ARRIVE EARLY! ARRIVE EARLY! CARPOOL! CARPOOL! CARPOOL!
