Great race, awsome that it promotes youth with the 1 mile fun run providing $1300 to student track teams that compete for cash towards equipment (shoes, uniforms, etc.)

Nice job on the race! This brings back memories for me. I ran at College of the Siskiyous from 1979-1980 and competed in road races against John Frank. He was a terrific runner and great person.
