Each runner will have to complete 9 laps in a CLOCKWISE direction. Distances are marked in QUARTER MILE intervals.

Each runner will receive a Sharpie.
After each lap, the runner will place a tick mark on the back of the hand.
When 9 laps are completed, the runner will rush to the POSTER at the finish line and write his/her time on it with the now much despised Sharpie. Mark your time in HOURS:MINUTES:SECONDS.

A water cooler will be provided. And some snacks.
This is a stroller, spectator,  and dog friendly course, being very well packed sand/pebbles. It's also pothole-free. Your kid could ride a bike next to you as you run!!

This leads to my next segment: The HARDCORE Club.
Halfway through the 1.5-mile loop is a small, optional hill just to the right of the trail. It has a picnic table on it. The HARDCORE people will run this hill 9 times...once on each loop. At the end, they receive not a prize, but a privelege. They get to put "HC" next to their time. That's all.

For the not HARDCORE: there is one portajohn on the course.

RUN THIS RACE, even if you did not participate in the Half #1!!!!!! :)
