Race co-chairs Tiffani Higginbotham and Jenny Winschief have finalized the 3.1-mile course to begin on East Main Street in front of Casey City Hall. Also new this year, the race will be chip-timed thanks to the generosity of Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center and Markwell Enterprises LLC.

For example, a group of five can pre-register by deadline for a total of $100, or $20 per person.
T-shirts and goody bags are guaranteed for pre-registrants and will be available race day as supplies last. Registration is from 6 to 6:30 a.m. race day for the 7 a.m. start.
