The Finish Before You Start Run Race Description

Ironhawk Endurance presents

The 2018 Finish Before You Start Run

 

You read that right, this race will start just before 2:00 AM at Daylight Savings time. Runners and walkers will complete a 2 mile loop or a 4 mile, 2- looped course through the early morning (late night?) lamp post lit streets of Waterloo, NE. Thanks to Mother Nature and Daylight Savings Time, once you've completed the course it will magically be before you started, and it might all have been a dream.  This course will begin and end at the Fire Barn Sports Bar and Grill in Waterloo. To commemorate time travel, the theme for this event is Back to the Future and prizes will be given to the best dressed 80s themed costume.Enjoy a post-race party supported by Fire Barn. Proceeds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
