Where do I need to park and what can I expect on the course?

Ok, I’m running 50 kilometers…(31 miles) I’m going to be hungry after.
Yeah you will! And we’ll have tons of delicious Sonny’s BBQ. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Stick around and enjoy a delicious meal. The post race area is completely family friendly. The award ceremony follows directly after then run. You can expect accurate scoring with results posted online the same day as the race.
What kind of cool swag do I get for registering?
All participants get a sweet custom TASC run shirt ($24 retail value!). Sizing is gender specific and runs pretty true to size. All finishers get a SWEET GIANT medal with a custom ribbon. Also, don’t forget the post race party for great food and music!
