"Majority of the people are out here just to run and have fun and do 6.2 miles. There are some competitive ones out there who do like the course too, I just talked to the guy who placed first last year and says this is one of his favorite courses. You know it is a lot of work, people don't realize how hard it is to put a race on, but I enjoy it," Co-director Billy McRae said.

Runners had the chance to win their own share of the $2000 of prize money.
