This year, we invite all registrants to run or walk anytime during the month of October 2020. You pick the time and place. Our hope is to get participants from all over the world.

Local Pick-Up for Swag packet is at the Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce during regular office hours. Shipping packets will require an extra fee of $6.95 which must be chosen as an add-on.
