More importantly, the most exciting thing about our 2nd annual event will happen on Thursday, May 10, 2018  at 10:00 am ET when our registration opens for just $1.00 for the Half Marathon and $1.00 for our 8K competition.  That’s Correct $1.00!   Athletes will be treated to a fantastic competition when registration opens for just $1.00 and moves up from that price as slots at each price are filled.  At similar events produced by Premier Event Management slots have sold in record time as competitors are excited about the opportunity to race for one of these valuable slots.  By the time the registration process has completed its first 24 hours, nearly $50,000.00 of slots are discounted to our very enthusiastic female competitors.
