All entrants must register for the race in the Plaza from 7:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 30 to receive a race bib and timing chip.  Entry fee is 200 pesos for adults and 150 pesos for students. Race time begins promptly at 9:00 a.m, and you don’t want to be late for a race.

Accurate race timing equipment will be used again this year which includes bibs and an electronic chip system. This chip may or may not report you if you take a short cut, want to try it?

Immediately following the race, awards will be presented to overall 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place men and women along with medals for men’s and women’s age group winners. Souvenir bibs will be given to all participants and souvenir race t-shirts will be available in the Plaza for 200 pesos purchase.
