The course runs through the streets of historic Medford and will have water stops and professionally timed mile markers. There will be post-race refreshments, high quality tech shirts, finisher medals, and music provided by local DJ, Marsdale Productions. Costumes are optional (in honor of the upcoming parade) with awards for best male and female costumes, as well as fastest overall male, fastest overall female and fastest males and females in many different age categories.
