My friends and I had a blast, each time we've done this run. It's not competitive (well, it is within each group of friends), it's more about having fun. There's food and drink before and after the event for kids and adults/big kids. Definitely bring disposable clothes and shoes as that pure American farming soil doesn't come off easily. We got free t-shirts for each entry. I'm glad to support an organization like the Redding Rotary too!
