Myriah Perry, Event Chairperson, said “We are very thankful for the amazing amount of support we have received from not only sponsors for the event but also people participating and volunteering. The event will once again have a raffle/prize element added to the race, “said Perry. “Your bib is your raffle ticket; prizes will be randomly attached to finish line crosses. If you finish in a designated prize slot, you win. There will be cash prizes for the overall winner, 2nd and 3rd places and all event participants will be entered into a Grand Prize drawing for $100.”
