The 10 am start time means you can have a relaxed pre race routine, as DOE registration doesn’t open until 8:30. Or you can save yourself a little trouble and register right now for $30. Entry also covers post race pizza and beer at a local Round Table Pizza. They always have unique pint glasses for participants and the most eclectic random prize giveaways. Of course, there will be the standard prizes for the top overall and age group finishers.
This event is also themed, with costumes encouraged. Prizes will be given to the best ones. It has been declared ‘Year of the Zombie’ so time to break out the best survivor or undead get up for even more entertainment.
As a past participant, I can say this is one of my favorite winter events. it has a few hills and some rough terrain, which is a nice change from road races. It doesn’t matter your pace, it is hard not to have fun at the race, providing you are dressed for the temps and have clean, dry clothes to change into afterwards. X Dog Events keeps this one low key and lots of fun, while being very well presented. So take advantage of the late 10 am gun time and get to Mary S Young Park on November 14th for some dirty and undead fun.
