The race is officially timed and Prizes will be given for male/female runner winners in six age categories.  We are also offering a special 2-person runner relay team option as well (runners must be of the same gender, but may be in different age categories).  A prize will be given to the best overall "Male" and "Female" 2-person relay team regardless of age category.  So, this would be a fun opportunity for parents and children to run together or runners "in training".  Each runner runs 2 of the 4 laps each in any order (~0.8 mile per lap).
