Our team will participate in the 35th Annual Starlight Run on June 1st, 2013.  This event is a TON of fun.  The run takes place immediately before the Starlight Parade, and most of the course is along the parade route.  This means many thousands of people will be cheering for you while you run (approx. 150,000).  Runners are encouraged to dress in costume; it's always interesting to see what people come up with!  Our team will wear our Yak Attack costumes!

Here is some information about the run:
  • Saturday, June 1st (race starts at 7:45PM -- we'll watch/participate in the costume judging around 6:45PM)
  • The Thorns game is at 2PM, we'll reserve a spot along the parade route right afterward. (Help needed!)
