Water at the finish line for Finishers

All finishers can grab a "Finisher Receipt" from the timer when they cross the finish line. Award winners can immediately get their awards from the awards table. We do not have an award ceremony. Don't waste the day hanging around for your award.

Custom awards pint pilsner glasses to the top 3 Men and Women overall and in every 10-year division.

JMacht Photography will be taking photos at the race and we will be providing FREE downloads. There will be finish photos and group photos with the gorgeous scenery. You can also purchase printed photos as well if you like. Great Christmas / Holiday Card photos, screen savers, or print them and hang them on the wall. Great memories and a great new tradition.
