What do I get for my Registration cost?

· A well-marked course

· An accurate time for your efforts on the course

· The RFID timing system used at every race

· A giveaway (past giveaways have been wicking shirts, hats, coolers, bags, fleece, hats, sweatshirts, jackets, cups and a few other items)

· A fully stocked aid station (not just water and a stale bagel at the finish line)

· Some form of post-race celebration. It may be just more aid station food with a beer but it is a chance to hang out and get to know your fellow runner.

Where else does my fee go that maybe I don’t see?

· It pays for the volunteers (Volunteers don’t work for free. There is a cost to everyone’s time)

· It pays for the work of the two RDs

· Permits

· Insurance

· Venue fees

· Bathrooms or porta johns

· Ongoing business expenses of operating a fulltime business
