A few of us here are training for upcoming ultramarathons (again) and don't want to do the longest training run alone. So we once again invite all our friends to join us for the 5th annual Racing for Daylight!! That means old friends, new friends and soon-to-be friends. With a fully stocked aid station, all your needs will be met! Race will be run (or biked or a combination of) on a 5 mile looped course on packed gravel. With a start time of 6pm, we run until 7am (since we lose an hour for Daylight Savings). That's how we will be Racing for Daylight. Won't you join us??? This race is totally FREE unless you want a one-of-a-kind souvenir shirt!! So come and participate for as long as you want. Walk, run, bike or do all three. The choice is yours!! We will be taking donations for the Healthy Futures Pulaski County OneSolePurpose project that is working to raise the funds to provide a new pair of shoes to every elementary student in the Title I schools in Pulaski County. Every $28 raised provides on pair of shoes and makes a difference in the life of a child.
