Here is how the Couples category works:
1) When you register, you may choose to register as an individual or couple – not both.
2) Niether Late or Race day registration will not be available for the Couples category. Registration will close for this category on February 8, 2017.
3) On race day, you do not have to run with your partner – unless you want to! Your combined times will determine if you are the winners so staying together is not a requirement.
4) There are two Couples categories that you may choose to enter: Adult/Adult and Adult/Child (In each category an adult is defined as an individual 18 years of age or older on race day and the child is under 18 years of age on race day)
5) Awards will be given out to the top three (3) overall fastest couples in the Adult/Adult and the Adult/Child categories.
