This year we are adding the Great Harmonica Huff N' Puff 6.5k race. We are very excited about this event. It will start at 9:00 am on Saturday, August 5th at the corner of Yellow Pine Ave. and Profile St. (by The Corner restaurant). Sign-in/registration is 7:30 to 8:00 am on the porch of The Corner. It is only $20 to register early (on-line) and $25 the morning of the race.
We have terrific sponsors and partners providing goodie bags and contents. And some of our festival musicians will be playing along the route to encourage the race participants.
The race route goes around town and through the National Forest. We want to be eco-friendly, so we are also asking participants to bring refillable water containers (to fill at the water station) so no litter is left in the forest.
The race finishes in the heart of town. We are asking visitors to help encourage the racers along the route and at the finish. Awards for 1st and 2nd place in both men's and women's divisions will be given out at 11:00 am on the South Stage (just south of the finish line.)
So come on out and run, walk, or urge on the participants!
If this race is popular, we will consider adding another and/or longer race next year.
