THANKSGIVING morning from 6:30 – 7:30 am.

TIMER – We have hired a professional timer and we’ll be using timing chips.


8:00 am Thanksgiving morning. Last year we were hesitant to close registration before the race because the line was so long. This year, it will close at 7:30 am. We really encourage you to register or pick-up your bib on Wednesday night.


No parking on Jordan Road! We’ve gotten into some trouble for clogging Jordan Road. If the church parking lot is full, please park down the street on Pearly Lane or Burning Tree Road. We will have a van circling those streets offering rides until 7:50 am.
