WHAT IS A PREDICT RUN? 
A predict run is a fun race format that allows anyone to be the overall winner regardless of gender, age, or ability. It is not about who is fastest, but who can guess closest to the time that they run! 
THIS EVENT IS VERY FAMILY AND BEGINNER FRIENDLY! 
We encourage you to bring out the whole family! A five year old who walks the entire 2 miles is still just as likely to win as a professional runner.
