The registration fee is $15 in advance or $20 the day of the event. Team registration is $20 per member. The cost for those 16 and younger is $10 in advance or $15 on the day of the event.

Teams of six or greater must register by Feb. 27. Team participants will receive a long-sleeved T-shirt with their team's name on the back. Individuals who register by Feb. 27 will receive a short-sleeved T-shirt. Individuals may register until 9 a.m. the day of the race, but are not guaranteed a shirt after Feb. 27.

Again this year, a raffle will be held in conjunction with the run/walk, with prizes that include a genuine Livestrong Spin Bike, Country Jam USA tickets, $100 in Chamber Bucks and a cooler with a built-in radio and iPod dock. The drawing will be held at 11 a.m. March 9. Tickets — one for $5, three for $10 or 10 for $20 — may be purchased at the University Recreation & Sport Facilities Hilltop Center office in advance or on the day of the event.
