Other Cool Stuff

They can analyze your unique biomechanics to determine your degree of pronation and from there they can narrow the shoe selection to a stability, motion-control, or cushioned shoe. They will also be selling the latest in racing flats and spikes. And don’t forget you can get your new gear personalized by the graffiti artist. We will also be doing face painting this year!

DJ Jammin Joe: DJ Jammin Joe will be on site providing 2000 watts of digital power for awesome sound that will be sure to entertain and motivate both spectators and athletes. At 10:30, right after the start of the last race we will hold a dance competition. Last year we saw some crazy moves so we are very excited to see what the kids have in store for us this year. We even have a special awards for our top dancers!
