You can register by clicking here. You can also register in person at different locations this week. There is also a Shuffle Off to Sleep option for those that want to support Habitat for Humanity and get a race shirt, but don’t want to run the race. Parking is free. Strollers are welcome (although they request that you line up at the back). And costumes are encouraged. There is a costume contest at the finish line right after the race!
