Description

Something new and exciting this year: Our shirts were designed by an Olympia High School student—Clayton Ford of Atlanta. He won the design contest we coordinated with Olympia art teacher Sandra Pitcher. I’m attaching a mock-up of the design, as well as a selection of photos from last year and our race logo.
Last year we fell just short of our goal of 200 participants (198! So close!), and we’re hoping to surpass that this year. People have told us that they love the opportunity to run or walk on Route 66 and support our efforts to revitalize our small town of McLean

Participants have a unique opportunity to run or walk 6.6 km (4.1 miles) on the Mother Road from Funks Grove to McLean. Parking is in McLean with shuttle service to Funks Grove Pure Maple Sirup for registration and a complimentary pre-race shot of maple sirup! The race ends at the McLean village square, where runners and walkers can pick up their t-shirts and other freebies (including a commemorative shot glass!) and enjoy music, a classic car show, food by the Dixie Restaurant, walking tacos, beverages, and adoptable dogs and puppies from Ruby’s Rescue and Retreat.
