There are two other special events … the “Specialized Quarter” (quarter mile) for athletes with special needs; and “Devil Takes the Hindmost,” a 2-mile race in which a very speedy runner (in 2013, it was Chuck Coats; this year it’s our very own Joe Dudman!) tags out the the last runner on each lap.
There is also a kid’s quarter mile, too. Both the kid’s quarter mile and the Specialized Quarter are free.
Kids are also invited to run in the “kids-age” age division mile (but it’s not on the free schedule).
