The Sunday road closure extends up Stow Lake Drive, so there will be no direct access to the start/finish line by vehicle.The closest vehicle access is at the Stow Lake Boathouse. You can park in this area and walk to the Pioneer Log Cabin Picnic Area a few hundred meters away.  Click here for parking map.

Join our Fundraising Team:

There are three ways you can help.

  1. INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISER: Runners can set up a customizable, individual fundraising page through the registration site after you register. (Instructions and links will be in your registration confirmation email). Prizes for the top student fundraisers.
  2. CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP: For corporate or company sponsorship, please contact: Monica Syler at  or Sponsors donating at least $500 get their logo on the back of the race shirt and the registration site.
  3. RACE REGISTRATION: For each race registration a student brings in, that student gets an additional raffle ticket for the race-day drawing for the Apple Watch. Be sure to have your friends and family list the student’s name during registration. The student who brings in the most registrations gets a prize.
