The Ring In the New Year is the first race in the Mill Stone 8K Trail Race Series for 2019. The course will be the one used in for the Mill Stone 8K in February, but the opposite direction.
The race is very low key, but there are awards. No shirt, but you will get a time and some Gatorade and water at the finish.
The start is at the Rush Pavilion on the ASC Greenway at 10:00 AM. Bib pickup will start at 8:30 AM at the same location.
Registering is required, both for the series and for our permit and insurance purposes. No bandits.

The Ring In races have been held for several years, always at the same location, but with varying lengths, depending on the year (18K in 2018, etc.). That model, however, was not going to work in the long run so the decision was made to add the race to the 8K series and settle on the 8K distance. We think that this is a good distance for New Year's Day, and there are other options (see below).
Want more distance?
All runners will go through the finish and get an 8K time. However, various options for addition miles, up to 19K, will be made available prior to the race. No credit for those, but the options will be available.
Local time: 12:56 PM
