There will be some raffles and hopefully a good time will be had by all. Course records are kept along with the February version of the race, and If you break a course record there will be some type of special prize. Course Records and pictures of some record holders.



$10 per team or $5 solo -- this is actually a suggested donation to offset race costs and support running/track & field in the Olympia area, so if cost would be a deterrent then you should still come run.

$15 per team or $10 solo day of race. (Day of race registration 8:15-9:15 AM at Heritage Park) -- this is still a donation, but it is a higher suggested donation just to encourage you to pre-register (which is now easier than ever with the super simple online registration form) -- if  you want to pre-register and donate more that is ok, too.
