    This event is a fundraiser for Vernonia Hands On Art Center, so it welcomes donations, yet at the same time, the race directors wanted to make this fun event accessible to as many people as possible.

    And also! Pre/post race refreshments will include Kind Bars and pretzel snacks, and Izze, San Pelligrino, GatorAde, and LaCroix beverages. Winners will not get medals, but instead a long sleeve t-shirt (a limited number will be available for sale at the race too). One lucky random runner will get a gift cert for a free pair of Brooks shoes!

    FINALLY. Everyone gets a coupon for 10% off their lunch / dinner at almost any restaurant in Vernonia on that day.
