LARC is partnering with Marathon Goddess Julie Weiss in fundraising for the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. LARC will donate $11 for each race registrant to the Hirshberg Foundation. Why $11? Julie is currently running 11 marathons in 11 months to illuminate the fact that the current survival rate for pancreatic cancer is just 11%.


This is a family-friendly fun run that is clock timed (not chip timed). It will be a loop course on the beach path (open course), with a marked turnaround and a water station. Here is the link to the course map
