What happens at the finish line?

We prefer to call it a milestone. We don’t want you to finish there. Friends and merriment will await your arrival. Come for the run, stay for everything else.

You can make a day out of our little neck of the woods. Stay at Pasta & Provisions for lunch or head across the street to Brawley’s Beverage. Park Road Shopping Center is full of fun awaiting at every turn. The sky is the limit in this area!
