Some of the Perks of Running the FLW Races: 

Long-sleeve tech t-shirt: You will want to wear this all season long. Here is the photo of the last year design.

Oatmeal Bar: Craft your own oatmeal creation! Sponsored by Trader Joe's.

Photo Downloads: We’ll capture you in high-resolution shots, and track those shots using your unique bib number. After the race, each registrant will be emailed free pictures and videos of themselves at the race. Share it on Facebook, tweet it, or download it and print it out
