Event Mission

ANNOUNCEMENTS: The Race to Animal Rescue of 2016 is back now called ROAR!
(That is, Race On! Animal Rescue.) For those of you who toughed it out in our first event, we've listened to your feedback. This year, we have:
. More volunteers
. More signage
. An adapted course
Online registration is open from now until August 3, 2017. At that point, you can still register on race day!
Just show up and you can register between 7:30 and 8:30 AM on Race Day August 5!
The cost is $30.00 - bring cash or check.
For all participants - the easiest thing to plug into your GPS is: the intersection of Corrigan Drive at Brownsville Rd. There's a parking lot right there, too. Our registration tables will be in Exhibit building number 4 at the south end of the Oval.

4. RACE SURFACE. The surface of the course is part road and part packed gravel trail- fine in road shoes- no different than running on asphalt roads with gravel, really. The trail portion was constructed for walking, running or biking and has no mud sections or tree roots. There are no steep hills in the course but some rolling upgrades and downgrades will add to the course's challenge levels. So based on this description you can assess whether you prefer road shoes or trail shoes.
