Just like last year, we will be starting at 8:00 am and the format is the same…. every top of the hour we line up and run a 4.167-mile loop within the Needham town forest and part of the Needham Rail Trail. There will be one winner and everyone else wonderfully will receive a DNF. The winner will be the last person running by themself.

We will NOT be crossing any roads and this is a self-sufficient race. The route and start location are the same as last year.Comment: This will be the 3rd year we run this race. We particularly want to encourage people with no BYU experience to join. It is a low key race with a low entry fee.
