QNHN spoke with the coordinator of the race Lisa Gerlemann about this year’s race.  Gerlemann said, “This year we have had the most preregistered runners.  If people have not registered they still can that morning and we have plenty of free “QuickDry” shirts for all participants.  Awards will be given out for the first male and female to cross the finish line as well as the first male and female under the age of 13.”

After the race over 30 different attendance prizes will be given out to those who participated.  You must be in attendance to receive a prize.

QNHN asked Gerlemann what precautions they have taken for the expected hot and humid weather on Saturday?  Gerlemann said, “We have water stands at the intersection of Melrose and Maupin Street and a second station in front of the Catholic Church.  We also have sprinkler stations set up throughout the course as well.” 

Residence along the route for the race are welcome to cheer on the runners and show your support.
