Runs will start and end at The Firm Family Fitness located at 1610 Freedom Drive in West Plains, Mo
Both distances and runs will start at 9 am with bib/packet pick up beginning at 8 am inside The Firm.
Shelter, Warm Restrooms, Hot Showers will be available to the participants before and after the event. The runs/walks will be mostly through a nice quiet neighborhood with very little traffic and just one hill of any consequence, but even that is just two city blocks long. The course has previously been USATF sanctioned and we anticipate that it will be again.
The event will offer a custom designed shirt along with overall awards and medals for the age group winners in categories 13-, 14-19, and each 10 year group after that. Each Registrant may run with one dog that must be leashed, friendly, well behaved, and must have current rabies vaccination with displayed tag. There will be finishers medals and a treat bag for the dogs crossing the finish line.
Deadline to be guaranteed an event shirt will be March 2nd. We may be able to get shirts after the event if enough late registrants sign up but the deadline will guarantee you a shirt on race day.
There will be refreshments, food, awards, and medals after the event. There will be custom awards for the overall male and female finishers of each race and medals for the top 3 age group winners ( male and female) in categories of 13 and under, 14-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 and over.
