This year’s new logo is ready. Our shirts will be golden yellow this year. If you haven’t started collecting our shirts yet, what are you waiting for??? We started with black originally in 2008. We have had neon green, purple, orange, blue, red and chocolate brown. Our little skeleton has changed through the years too. I think he is getting cuter and cuter, just like his little running companions this year.
Remember to tell all of your friends about this year’s race. We want it to be the best one yet. Our post race party is going to be a blast! Ooh La La and the Greasers will be playing and we have some wonderful food sponsors again this year. For starters, Sammy’s Gourmet Burgers and El Pueblo will be back.
