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 42nd running, we plan to recognize the most creative costume-clad runners at our Awards Ceremony. In addition, a variety of 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!
