Go to to download the race application.  You will also need to submit your PERF rating.
The race is followed by the pig roast complete with roasted red potatoes, corn and tossed salads, rolls and desert.  this is a $10 dinner.  We have a special event liquor license allowing racers and guests who are not members to purchase drinks that day. The awards ceremony will follow dinner.
