Qs & As:

Q:    Does this race go through a swamp?  

A:    No . . . no it does not.

Q:    Is this a trail race?

A:    No and yes. But really no.  The races are all run on paved surfaces throughout the entire distance.  Some of that distance, though, is covered on the Wabash Cannonball Trail.  And even though it's called a trail, it's a paved bike path. So you'll be running on something called a trail but it's not a trail. Got it?

Q.    Do all the races start at the same time?

A.    No.  The 25K starts at 9:00 a.m., the 15k starts right after in waves of 50.   The 5K race starts at 9:30 a.m.    Kids at 8:30am

Q.  When & where can I pick up my bib?

A.   Packet pick up will Friday before the race - see above for location and time.  There is no race day pick up 

Q:    Did this race used to be Randy's Festival of Races?  

A:    Yes, and for more on that, click on the Last Mile Memorial link towards the top of the page.

Q:    There are four different races. Do they start at different times?

A:    Yes, yes they do.   see above

Q.     Will there be post-race massages available?
