This is an old landfill area that wraps its hills in green grassy glory and gives itself as a gift to all runners. It is a pretty, open, waterside trail comprised of open fields connected with a sandy, dirt trail.
Runners will run the course 1-4 times depending on desired mileage outcome.
     Each runner will receive a number. There will be no packet pickup, but there will be a very SPECIAL award to each runner! I might tell you what it is if you email me: Ok, I'll just say it, I'll sayit, I'll say it...*SPOILER ALERT...* ...It's a small, wooden birdhouse. HEY, road running is for the BIRDS that day!!! We're on trails May 18!!!
     Male and Female winners (#1) of each distance receive a unique wooden plaque.
Average weather is 58-75 in May.
This is a first time event.
     PRICE is $10 or $15 or $20 depending how soon you sign up!!!!!!!! Keeping it real. Keeping it cheap. I guess you can sign up race morning if you email me ahead of time. $25 on race day.
Proceeds will be minimal and will go to future cheap running events or free races or programs or local charities.
