    Conquering the Cobble . . . .  In A Costume!   Each year the race has more & more costume-clad runners.  We always encourage runners to wear a costume!  If your “not so blistering pace” isn’t fast enough to land you a spot on the podium, your creativity just may be the ticket.  In celebration of our 42nd running, we will recognize the Top Five creative costume-clad runners at our Awards Ceremony immediately after the race.  Gift certificates, courtesy of local merchants, will be awarded.

    Help Support the Kent Food Bank!   We encourage all participants and spectators to bring non-perishable donations to support the great work of our Official Charitable Beneficiary ~ the Kent Food Bank ~ as they prepare for their busiest time of year.  Donations can be dropped off at the Davis IGA during Race Week  ~ or at the start/finish area on Race Day.  Thanks for your generous support!
