  • Pace leaders and pace groups for run paces 7:00 to 12:00 minutes and Run / Walk paces 10:30 to 12:00 minutes
  • Nine on-course aid stations. (We have added one additional on-course station for 2017!)
  • Gear check with gear transported from start to finish
  • Exclusive finisher's shirt to all runners who complete the Ready to Run 20 Miler
