We will have a food table for our participants donated by Larry's Foodland, Crumble Cookie, The Looney Baker, So Delish, The Detroit Bagel Company, Einstein Bagel Joe's Produce, and Westborn Market.

Rules: Strollers are welcome. We love our furry friends but ask to keep pets at home. We are running through our parish, parks, and neighborhoods; please stay off the grass. When it is possible, please run on sidewalks. Please keep costumes family-friendly and safe for running. Above all else, have fun!
