Some changes for this weekends run. The start/finish location has been changed to the east end of Snyder. This is the same location where the exchange for the half marathon relay used to be for Escape From Prison Hill. Due to the amount of rain we've been having, we want to minimize our impact on the trail system within Prison Hill recreation Area. Course routes will stay on the southwest side of Prison Hill utilizing some of the more sandy trails that have been able to better absorb the amount of moisture we have been receiving. Even though the rains have made the sandier trail more ideal to run on than summer months, this does not mean the race courses will be easier. You should know better by now! Directions have been updated below.
This run is part of a series. Registration is $20/event, $10 for students. There is a $5 procrastination fee for all race day registrations making it $25, $15 for students.
