In every runner there is a fighter. Let’s fight suicide together.

Nine years ago, my twin sister Nadezhda “Nadya” committed suicide (featured right).  I am on a mission to use running as a campaign for suicide awareness and prevention. I started the Nadezdha Foundation for Suicide Prevention to do just that, and hope to inspire the running community to hit the pavement to help!

The initial member registering for the race will be able to create their team during registration. Additional members will then select their team from the team dropdown.

Each team member’s race result will indicate their team name, so you do not need to qualify for team results to be recognized as a team.

To compete, you must have at least five members.

A team qualifies for group results when it has at least five members with valid race results. That team’s top five qualifying members are used to compute the team’s overall placement.


Please visit race registration page to obtain details regarding packet pick-up, race entry fees, course location, and parking.

We look forward to seeing you on race day!
