BATTLING CANCER RACE INFORMATION
Grand Prix Series
The Coldwell Banker Elite Grand Prix Series is a competitive schedule in the Fredericksburg region in which runners score points to ultimately win awards at the end of the season at the annual FARC Banquet. It is a chance to compare yourself to your peers and another way to meet people!
If you are not walking or running, we can use your help. We are looking for volunteers for course marshals, water tables, packet pickups, registration tables on race day, and setup/takedown crews. If you are interested or know someone who is interested, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
