This is a competitive chip-timed 10K Run & 10K Relay.
10K Run: You can run as an individual or with a team of 4-6 runners. Everyone is eligible to win individual awards, even those who are running on a team. Medals will be awarded to the Top 3 overall male and female runners and the Top 3 teams in each division; Male, Female and Co-Ed. The winner in each age group will also earn a medal. Age groups; 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74 and 75+. All finishers will receive a very nice Park-to-Park 10K finisher medal!
