Awards Ceremony

Additional Information (from the timers)
Your bib needs to be on the front of your outermost layer of clothing so we can see it as they are coming up to the finish line.  The timing tags will need to be worn with one on each shoe, so they hang off the outside of either shoe.  There will be an example to place at the registration table.   Also, the timing tags need to be returned into the bin after you are done with the race.  There will be volunteers that will be helping with the collection of the timing tags.

Fueled by university-backed curriculum, 4-H'ers engage in hands-on learning activities in the areas of science, healthy living, and food security.
