Event registration and start line will be at the Ishpeming High School Gymnasium. There are two races, a 5K and a 10K, both of which will be run on the Iron Ore Heritage Trail.

The race begins at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday. Registration can be done HERE prior to the event or at the event, from 7:45 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. Participation costs $10, and everyone is welcome, whether you walk, run or trot.
