How does it work?
Just like every other run, there will be the pre-race packet pick up where you get your bib, shirt etc.  There will be an official start, outside of Xfinity Live, along with a simulations finish.  Participants can then make their way inside Xfinity Live for the best post-race party ever!

How much does it cost?
The entry fee is $35.
LIMITED DAY OF ENTRY MAY BE AVAILABLE
