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 and 15K race both start at 9:00 a.m.   The 5K race starts at 9:15 a.m.   1K kids race start at 8:15 a.m.

Q.  How do I register for the 1K kids race?

A.  No registration needed for the 1K kids race.

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

A.   Packet pick up will be the Friday before the race from 4 p.m. to 7  p.m.   And of course you can pick it up on the morning of the race at Fallen Timbers Middle School.

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.   The 25K and 15K race both start at 9:00 a.m.   The 5K race starts at 9:15 a.m.    1K kids race starts at 8:15 a.m..  Did we say this already?  Yep, but why not twice?

Q.     Will there be post-race massages available?
