The 5k course is new for 2012! The race will begin on the track inside Johnny Unitas Stadium before exiting to run around, and through, the campus of Towson University. Baltimore County Police will monitor all intersections, and Towson University Police will provide assistance while participants briefly pass through campus. Strollers, pets, roller skates, and other wheeled devices are not allowed on the course for the 5k.
The 1 mile walk will be completely contained on the track, as participants will complete four laps of the track on the inside lanes.
The winner of the race will win the coveted Founder’s Cup, a crystal trophy created to commemorate the Great Prostate Cancer Challenge. The top 3 overall males and females will win awards, as well the top 3 males & females in each age group as follows:
19 & Under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, & 60+
Awards will be given to members of the winning team in each size category (2-5, 6-10, and 11+).
Tech T-shirts (mens and womens sizes) will be given to all registrants (sizes cannot be guaranteed after 8/24, and availability may be limited for race-day registrants).
