“Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.” – Steve Maraboli

Anyone who registers at the last minute will be provided a shirt and bag while supplies last.  If you register before September 18th, there is a $10 discount from race day registration.
