The event will once again include a half marathon, a 5K, and a team challenge. Cash prizes will be given to the top three male and female half marathon finishers. First place will receive $500, second place $250, and third place $100. The races will begin 7:30 a.m., Eastern time, in the shadow of the Jasper Train Depot along the Pa- toka River and will finish in the shade at Dave Bue- hler Plaza, just a stone's throw away from the start- ing line. The hilly, scenic course takes runners through commercial and resi- dential areas with chal- lenging peaks midway through the route. A f- ter the midway point, the course largely flattens out through to the finish. The 5K starts and ends in the same location as the half marathon, but splits to take a different course very close to the start of the race. The team challenge is a relay comprised of a four-person team and fol- lows the same course as the half marathon. The first team member will travel 3.8 miles, then pass along his/her timing chip to the second member. The second member will cover 4.05 miles, the third member 2.5 miles, and the final member 2.75 miles. The registration fee for the half marathon is $ 60 if registered before Au- gust 13, when the fee will increase to $70. The reg- istration fee for the 5K is $25. The registration fee for the team challenge is $25 per person/$100 per team. Pre-registrants will re- ceive a technical shirt, and the first 500 half mar- athon registrants will re- ceive a special gift. A free training group will meet every Sunday at 7 a.m. Eastern time, at Downtown Running and Fitness located at 331 Mill Street. This training group is open to the public and participants are free to run/walk at their own pace. The Heartland Half Marathon, 5K, and Team Challenge are being co- ordinated by DC MultiS - port, a non-profit organi- zation dedicated to pro- moting health and well- ness while giving back to local communities. Lodging information is being coordinated by the Dubois County Visi- tors Center and race-day event volunteers are being coordinated by Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, the event's corpo- rate sponsor. The majority of the proceeds from this year's race will be given to the Phillip R. Dawkins Heart & Vascular Center at Me- morial Hospital to be uti- lized for new integrative medicine services pro- vided to cardiac patients. Ten percent of the pro- ceeds will go toward the DC MultiSport Endow- ment to ensure future sta- bility of the organization and to continue in its ef- forts to give toward wor- thy causes.
