Pre-registered runners can pick up their race packet the day before the event on March 9 from 2 to 8 p.m. at STC’s Pecan Campus Health & Wellness Center, located at 2515 Pecan Plaza in McAllen.

Race-day registration begins at 6:30 a.m. on March 10, and the race will start at 7:30 a.m.

The top three men’s and women’s finishers in each age division will be given an award. The categories are: 0-10, 11-15, 16-20, 21-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, and 75-plus.
