After September 15, racers can register on Friday night before the race at Davis Fire Hall from 5-7 p.m., or race day morning starting at 8 a.m. Race Day Registration closes promptly at 9:30 a.m., the Parade of Teams begins at 10 a.m., the race start is 11 a.m. in front of the Davis Fire Hall. The Award Ceremony is held at 1 p.m. at the Frontier Communications stage across the street.
Racers can sign up for any team and team members do not have to walk and run together. The variety of award categories benefits racers of all ages and abilities – speed is not required to win. Tucker Community Foundation invites you to join the growing roster of racers that line up to invest in a community they love.
