You asked and we responded. A simplified registration process is available for the 2017 FLW Races through RAM Racing. No more setting up or signing into your household.

You can still save $10 when you register by September 1st.

All participants in each race will receive a long-sleeved t-shirt (shirt size guaranteed if registered by September 30th), accss to refreshments and sponsor giveaways, massages, and screenings in the post-race sponsor area and NEW THIS YEAR, unlimited photo downloads. All participants also receive admission to the oatmeal breakfast bar in the cafeteria. REGISTRATION OPENS JUNE 1.
