The Pub Crawl (canceled)
With great uncertainty in the days ahead, we have decided not to hold the annual pub crawl which traditionally takes place directly after the race. We encourage runners to take a break after their run at one (or many!) of our downtown restaurants and bars. Establishments may offer runners discounts or specials, so be sure to bring your running bibs, just in case!

Event Registrations are Non-Refundable. Not responsible for lost or stolen items.
