We are so happy to officially announce that we will be continuing this race in 2018! After a hiatus during which we altered plans and did some reorganization, registration is now back open. For those of you who received refunds during that hiatus (and for those of you who missed our original early bird special), registration fees will be $20 now through March 31st!
In order to continue this race, we have had to make a few minor changes, the most notable of which are:
-We will be moving forward with a "donate all proceeds" model. Previously, we ensured that all of our costs were covered by sponsors so that we could donate 100% of every registration fee to NLEOMF. However, as the race grows, so do the expenses, and it's become unrealistic for us to continue to completely cover our costs with sponsorships since they are so difficult to secure year after year. We will continue to seek as many sponsorships as possible and any help in this search is greatly appreciated.
-We love having finisher medals too ... but the costs are HUGE. To ensure that we're donating as many dollars as possible to NLEOMF, we will no longer give out finisher medals to our runners (but everyone definitely still gets those awesome shirts we all love!)
Despite these small changes, we're looking forward to continuing to be the fun, inspiring race you've all come to know and love! If you have any comments or questions at all, please feel free to reach out to us via our Contact Us page. Thank you all so very much for your continued support!
