Registration fees are $35 for adults; $15 for students (Student ID required); and $70 for a family of three ($10 for each additional member). Prices on race day for students will be ($20) and for family of three ($80). Children under seven are free. Participants will receive a free T-shirt with registration. Registration opens at 7:30 a.m.
