Why a Night-Time Race?
Half-Marathon Relay (2 Participants)
Night Time races are WONDERFUL.  Enjoy the excitement of the evening, the party right after, and the ability to manage your fueling and rest through the entire day.  No early morning and rush to eat and get there.  No need to forgo having spectators on site for guilt of asking them to wake up early.  Best of all, every minute that goes by the temperature gets cooler and cooler.  Rather than starting at a low temps and the day getting warmer, you start cool (sunset) and the run will get progressively more comfortable.  Join us on September 16 and learn first hand what makes an evening race an experience like no other!!
