What time does the race actually start?
The race starts at 10:30am.

I registered online. Do I really need to come early to check-in?
All pre-registered participants – both runners and walkers – must check-in on the morning of the event. At check-in, you will receive your t-shirt (if you qualified for one) and, if you are a runner, your race bib. We suggest that you leave ample time to complete this check-in prior to the race. Although we do our best to move people through quickly, lines can become long.

How much is the registration fee?
Adult Rates:
Until March 15th: $30
March 16th-April 19th: $35
At the Event: $45

Child (Ages 2-12) Rates:
Until March 15th: $15
March 15th-April 19th: $20
At the Event: $25
Children under 2 will be admitted for FREE

What happens if I don’t register online by Midnight on April 19th?
MIF has a small staff and it takes quite some time to compile all of the registration information into helpful check-in sheets for the day of the event. For this reason, we close online registration a few days ahead of the event. If you do not register by midnight on April 19th, you will need to register on the day of the event and pay the higher fee. To avoid this inconvenience, be sure to register early!

What happens if there is bad weather the day of the event?

Participants Are Saying …

I felt a sense of love and support among the participants in the walk. At some spots, the venue allowed for one to view the number of participants — which was encouraging and exciting based on the growth of the event! Made me proud to be a participant for several years.
