  • *** Your number one goals for this race are to get active and have fun like a Griswold. However, please note that preliminary course map will include running over railroad tracks with safety gates for 10k and Half, which is considered a natural obstacle if train crosses. Unfortunately if the (@#!&) train crosses (according to their official schedule they do not run on Sunday, but they do anyway), times will be kept as-is., otherwise we will be manually tinkering with multiple times which would get very messy and upset our timing guru-we don't want to mess with Chuck! We hate trains  and apologize for this, but we promise regardless you will have fun and get active- because we're the Griswolds!  Plus, we offer Eaglemonk and cupcakes afterwards. If a train crosses, just keep that in mind.
