The Race has been intentionally been put on Wait List, but we're not sold out! If you’re interested in running, sign up for the wait list as its 1st come 1st served. No funds will transfer till the wait list is lifted and you accept the invitation! Currently the wait list end date is set as far out as possible since we don't know when the "All Clear" to hold the race will be given! We'll give you ample notice, but this way we have an idea on who is planning on running the race and you have a spot in line! We're expecting to have our capacity reduced and since there are few races being held we expect to reach the reduced maxim number of runners quickly. Getting on the wait list will get you in line for one of the last remaining spots!
