Brief Description This is a race to see who can cross the finish line closest to midnight without crossing it too early. There will be no timing devices allowed. You start when you think it will be the right time so you can cross the finish line at midnight. Full Description This is a fundraising race. All the money will go to the Mapleton Parkway Trail. This is so a running trail can be put through Mapleton along parts of the old canal road. There will be a party after with ice cream, drinks, food, etc... We will be supplying some glow in the dark lights. Extras can be bought or you can bring some yourself. Lighted costumes are encouarged. Awards will be given for best lighted costume. Here’s some details… This is meant to be a fun run, so we will start about 9:00 or 10:00pm. Slower runners earlier, faster runners later, (you decide exactly when). Awards will be given for the first across the finish line after midnight. No timing devices will be allowed. This way those of us that never win a race have a chance. It will be a full moon and we will have glow necklaces and bracelets. Most people will cross the finish line around midnight, then the after party begins. There will be lots of food and we will have music. This will be a fund raising event for the Mapleton Parkway Trail.
