*New for 2017, ***you can get a refund of your entire $30 registration fee!*** We have selected a new registration site this year that allows participants to set up fundraising pages. This is not required, but we would welcome your help raising money for the SP Land Trust and SP Historical Society. During registration, you'll find a button to create a fundraising page. You can then share your page via social media so that friends and family can sponsor your participation in the race. If you raise $100 or more through your fundraising page by race day, we will refund your registration fee. You'll find more information when you go through the registration process.
