The race will begin and end at Teton Athletic Club, 911 Flag Drive, in Riverton.
Same-day registration for the event is from 7:30 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. The race begins at 8:30 a.m., according to event organizers.
There is a registration fee of $15.
A cash prize of $25 will be awarded to the winners of each men's and women's under-20 and over-20 division. A $15 second prize also will be awarded in the same divisions, and drawings will be held for additional cash awards and other prizes.
