If you want to support the local running community and the fight against cancer, we'd love for you to get involved.
Our race provides many opportunities for you to gain exposure for your business or organization.
You can also order a race T-shirt and/or road sign with the name of a loved one. Register now.
Who do you run for? I run for my sister Sue Congdon Medina, who has been so courageous in her battle with breast cancer. This half marathon’s purpose is to empower our loved ones to continue the fight against cancer, remember those we have lost, and to raise funds for cancer research. I encourage you to wear a shirt that shares who you run for or that shares an inspirational quote.
- Anne Seepersaud, Co-Race Director
