Awards

The much coveted Firefighter Trophy will be awarded to the top 3 in each 5 year age group. Do you have what it takes??? If you don't get a trophy...no problem...remember EVERYONE gets a finishers medal!!!

Food!!!

Whats a Firefighter event without some good food? Whole Foods Wellington will again be supplying food for the post race Firefighters Barbecue. Nothing like some Ribs and Chicken Wings after a Saturday morning race! Of course there will be the usual bananas, oranges and other "stuff" for the traditionalists out there...Thank you Whole Foods!!!

Charity

Once again proceeds will be split between Little Smiles of Florida and the Jeff Annas Memorial Scholarship Fund. Last year they were able to present Little Smiles a check for $6,000!!! And...they awarded $9,000 in Scholarships!!! A great way to help out the community.

Pre-Race Packet Pick Up will be September 7th and 8th at Fit2Run in the Wellington Mall from 12-5pm. There will also be a Packet Pick Up September 11th at Whole Foods Wellington from 5-8 pm.
