USATF Certified: NY05103KL
2.5 mile fun run, and kids races: 1 mile, 1/2 mile, 1/4 mile
**Early Start Option** - we are offering an early start option for 15K runners who feel they will finish after one hour and 45 minutes. To partake in this option, you must be ready (WITH TIMING CHIP) and at the start line by 7:25AM. The Early Starters will start at 7:30AM SHARP. The key is you must be in that bracket where you know it will take you 1:45 or more to finish. Please know that the early start will be self supported initially. Once the race starts at 8:30AM, road marshalls and water stops will be out. Awards will take place at 10:15AM, so we’d love everyone to be able to be present.
