There will be a course sweeper to ensure everyone is accounted for. Each runner is encouraged to run on the left side of the road and must be aware of cars. There may be loose gravel or potholes.

Race Day Registration
Takes place from 6:30 to 7:10 a.m., Saturday, June 2, at the shelter in the back of the park.
This year we are doing something different. Instead of a shirt the swag will be a pint glass with the race logo AND a free beer or soft drink at the post-race party at Riggs Beer Company. The post-race party will take place on race day from noon- 2 pm. You will receive a voucher at packet pickup that you can turn in at Riggs for a beer or soft drink during the post race party.
A successful race needs more than runners - to volunteer click below. Volunteers will get a Sidney Dairy Barn ice cream sanwich after the race.

Packet pick-up will be at Body n’ Sole (1317 N Dunlap St, Savoy) on June 1 from 4 to 7 p.m.
Parking will be available in the park. Because of limited space carpooling is appreciated and encouraged.
Awards will be presented to the overall male and female winners, and to the top three male and female finishers in the following age groups: under 15, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 and over. No awards will be mailed.
