Many thanks to all the participants and volunteers who helped make the event such a big success.

To date the event has raised over $73,000 with donations still being accepted.

The event concluded with an awards ceremony in which overall and category winners received medals and prizes such as running shoes, prefab othotics , athletic socks and shirts, gift certificates and more courtesy of The Orthotic Group, Running Free, Saucony and Lululemon Athletica. Our younger runners all received participant medals.
