Registration and packet pick-up begins at 7:30 a.m. in the Williams Center and the race begins promptly at 9 a.m., with a post-race party to follow. More information on the course and race-day specifics can be found online. Race registration is available online or in the Fredonia Ticket Office in the Williams Center until Thursday, March 2. Student registration is $15 and general registration is $25. The first 150 entrants get a short sleeved, dri-fit T-shirt.

Volunteers can also sign up online to assist with the event.
