    Click on the COURSE INFO tab for a course map, spectator locations, water stations/bathrooms, and parking areas. More than 100 volunteers will be out and about on race day, ensuring the safety of our participants. Give them a shout-out as you run/walk by! Also note that the course will close at 11 a.m. and no longer volunteer/staff supported.



    Once finishers cross that line, it’s time to party and celebrate finishing 13.1 miles! There will be juice, chocolate milk, fruit bars, fruit, and donuts from Daylight Donuts (we finish right in front of their shop!) at the finish line. Our DJ will be blasting tunes so you can relax and enjoy yourself before the awards ceremony, which will take place around 10:15 a.m. Plus – make sure you stop by the Step and Repeat banner and snap a selfie or group photo showing off your finisher’s medal! And…while you’re downtown, enjoy the Downtown Rod Run going on that morning!

    We award the overall male and overall female finisher, as well as top three finishers for both male and female in the following age categories: 19 & Under; 20-24; 25-29; 30-34; 35-39; 40-44; 45-49; 50-54; 55-59; 60-64; 65 & older
