GET YOUR REAL TIME TRACKING AND TIMING INCLUDED WITH YOUR REGISTRATION AND THE SWAG IS TOTALLY OPTIONAL!
We are going to go big and offer a bunch of swag this year for this event. We will have custom branded neck gaiters, t-shirts, and finisher medals for all finishers. HOWEVER, its totally optional. If you want to run a reasonably priced virtual run just for the competition and the results, well then you can do just that! If you want the medal and the shirt and the gaiter you can add that on to your cart when you check out. We know you will rock that frog-king neck gaiter all around town and wear your bling when you go curbside shopping after the event! Or you can just be cool and wear it around your house and Tik-Tok with it on….Ummm…Yeah, please don’t do that….
MEDALS ARE PROMISED TO BE ABSOLUTELY ENORMOUS AND SHIRTS WILL BE A SPECIAL EDITION ITEM AS WELL. WE ARE JUST GOING TO BRAG AND SAY WE ARE SETTING A TREND WITH THE NECK GAITERS…OH WAIT, CORONAVIRUS ALREADY CLAIMED THAT TREND.
ADDITIONALLY WE WILL OFFER AWARDS FOR THE OVERALL FINISHERS MALE & FEMALE AND MASTERS MALE & FEMALE

IF YOU ARE NOT LOCAL, NO WORRIES, YOU CAN FIND A HILL ANYWHERE AND USE THAT AS YOUR COURSE AND SUBMIT THE TIMES THROUGH THE RACE JOY APP.
THE 2K CHALLENGE
This year we are going to bring back the 2K Challenge. This is for those Milers out there who want just a little bit more. The only catch is that you have to do it on the hill. If you are not local, you can find any 2K hill and submit your times on the race joy app as well.
Categories will be:
Male & Female Top 3 Overall
Masters Top 3 Male & Female Overall
If you are competing for an awards you MUST have finish time verification and run the actual course. You MUST use the racejoy app and also take a pictutre of the GPS data on your watch and or phone. The data must reflect the date, time, and distance completed. You must also take a picture at the top of the hill upon completion and post it to our social media page. We will outline these rules as well in your registration confirmation and in additional emails that will be sent out leading up to the race.
RUN FOR FREE!
Yes, that is right! You can run for free if you refer friends. Its simple: After you register just send your registration link that you will be provided to your friends and family. For each person that signs up through your link, you will get paid! If you get 5 people to sign up you will receive your registration fee back. Hows that for a deal?
The race ANYWHERE division is not eligible to compete for the overall awards. We are not going to let 2020 slip by without naming the King of the Hill! This has been a prestigious title bestowed up on many as they enter the South Florida running season.
Lets keep up the tradition and see who will be the 2020 King & Queen of the Hill!
