The event features three levels of participation: the 5K Pennant Run, the 1K Kids Run, and the Little Sluggers Dash (free for children three and under). The Spokane Indians will present an exclusively engraved baseball bat to the top male and female performers in the 5K and 1K divisions. The Little Sluggers Dash gives children the chance to circle the bases with OTTO the Mascot all while enjoying snacks and other fun activities in the infield.
Early registrants will be guaranteed a commemorative technical T-Shirt on race day, as well as a ticket to the 4th of July Fireworks game that night against the Vancouver Canadians. Early Bird registration ends on Sunday, June 15th; Late registration is open until one hour prior to start of race.
