    Conquering the Cobble . . . .  In A Costume!   Last year’s race witnessed a record number of costume-clad runners.  We’re looking to build upon that success this year by encouraging 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 41st running, we plan to recognize the Top Five creative costume-clad runners at our Awards Ceremony.

    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!
