For last minute changes that require shipping, we cannot promise it will make it there by New Year's Day. Virtual participant packets will be mailed 12/27.

Still Time to Fundraise or Donate: Thank you to all who have started a fundraising page or supported another participant's page. It truly makes a difference for HHS Class of 2024 and those in our community impacted by Parkinson's. Plenty of time to still fundraise or donate! Participants who raise $100 and would like a registration refund should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Start: There will only be one start that includes walkers and runners. We ask that everyone please line up according to where they expect to finish in the crowds. Walkers should be at the back. Please be aware that participants loop the municipal building and will be crossing through the start line again so those at the back of the race should be mindful not to get in the way of lead runners.
Dogs & Strollers: As a USATF sanctioned Grand Prix event, dogs on leashes and strollers are not permitted in the race.
