About race entry fees: 

Proceeds from your registration fee benefits Pearl Alliance. We work hard to make sure that as much of your entry fee as possible is used to fight human trafficking. Our sponsors play a huge role in making that happen by covering the majority of costs associated with putting on these events.

This year, we want you – the race participant – to have a greater impact by choosing your registration fee. We suggest a minimum of $25 per entry, but have left a place for you to pay any amount. Pay what you can. Pay what you feel is right. YOUR REGISTRATION FEE IS NOT TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.


  • Overall: Awards will be given to the top 3 overall male and top 3 overall female finishers.
  • Age Group: Awards given to 1st place male and female in 10-year increments. (0-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+)
  • CHSAA Members: If you will not be able to receive an award for your finishing place, please let us know when you register! We will acknowledge your awesome finishing time and place, but will be able to accurately award those next in line. Thanks!
