Participants can choose from a 2-mile walk or run (not timed) or a 10K (6.2 miles) run (timed).
Entry fees are $35 from November 19-21 during pre-packet pick up only at Scheels; $60 on race day (cash/check only, credit card will not be accepted that day).
Every runner and walker receives a commemorative sweatshirt and post-race refreshments.Proceeds benefit Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful for local beautification projects.
