For a free race entry select:  “I want to be a member of this team and agree to hit the required fundraising minimum”

  • Runners who register for the race with a charity entry must commit to a $750 fundraising minimum for the full and a $500 fundraising minimum for the half. All fundraising is due one month after the race.
