Food/aid stations: Due to our unique multi-loop course setup, we have one giant “aid station,” with more food and drink than you could ever need! Ask anyone who’s run at least one of our races; we’ve got everything from fruit to jelly beans to sandwiches, water to Gatorade to hot coffee, and everything in between. Way more than just Goo and bananas (although the banana smoothies really hit the spot on hot days)!

Registration information is below. You may do any number of races; special medals are awarded to those who complete all four!

What about the bling?
We all know that’s the best part!
All finishers will receive one cotton T-shirt, and a separate medal for each day; in addition, we give a special medal to those who complete all races in a series.
We even give a special award to each person participating in his or her first full or half marathon!
The best part: The famous caboose, given to the final finisher of each marathon and half marathon!
