Gear Check: we will not have a gear check. Because the start and finish lines are within rock throwing distance of your car, and your car told us she'd be happy to hang on to your sweats for you.

Aid Station: there will be one aid station on course serving both the 5 mile and 5k. H2O only.

Age Group Awards: you're all winners in our book, no matter how old you are. But still, we'll be sure to recognize age-grade acheivements, probably with some sort of official proclamation of your awesomeness.

Family/Spectator Viewing Area:  If you are coming to support a friend or family member, come hang out at the Finish Line inside Municipal Stadium.  After you park, you can access this area through the main gate at the corner of Alma and Senter.
