Medals will be awarded to the fastest three finishers in three different categories: men, women and children under 12. Each participant will receive a goody bag for taking part.

Dogs are welcome at the event, but must be on a leash at all times. Attendees are asked to be aware that the event will be a loud, crowded environment and want runners to put their dog’s emotional and mental health first. If a dog may be scared, anxious or overly excited, they encourage owners to leave them safely at home.
