Fast or slow or anywhere in between, anyone can win the Y2Y Time Prediction Run!
Predict how long it will take you to run/walk the 6.0 mile distance without the use of watches, GPS, or any timing devices. The winners are selected based on the finishers who are closest to their predicted time.
Proceeds will benefit the Cedar Rapids Metro Area Y Association to continue funding Livestrong at the YMCA program (not that other Livestrong Foundation). This is a local program to assist those in an Cancer Exercise Recovery Program.
Packet pick-up and late registration is from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and from 7:00 a.m. – 7:45 a.m. on Sunday before the race.
The route follows the Cedar Valley Nature Trail. The Trail is open to the public, you may encounter walkers, runners or bicyclists. Please use caution and extend courtesy to all trail users. The roads are open to traffic so use sidewalks where appropriate. The new course for 2017 is 6.0 miles.
8:00 a.m. Predicted time to finish over 1 hour.
8:15 a.m. Predicted time to finish under 1 hour.
Finish Line: Official timing and course closes at 10:00 a.m.
The closest to their predicted time receives a One Year Adult Membership to the YMCA. Additional prizes for 2nd and 3rd time closest to predicted time to finish, plus Overall Winner (fastest time to complete race) and a few other surprise prizes for participants. Awards, prizes, refreshments and socializing inside the downtown YMCA after the last finishers complete the course.
