After May 20th online registration fees are $30 for timed competitive runners, $25 for adults noncompetitive, $25 for timed survivors, $20 for noncompetitive survivors, $20 for teens 13-17, $10 for kids 2-12 years, $10 for babies 0-24 months, who will receive a special baby gift, and $10 for dogs, who receive a special “Pooches in Pink” gift.
Registrants can also “Sleep in for the Cure,” where participants pay $30 in Race fees but plan to “sleep in” instead of attend Race and receive a sleep in gift along with their Race shirt.
Another new item for this year is the Remembrance Wall where you can have a photo and name of a survivor or loved one lost to breast cancer that will be displayed on Race day.
