Coral Bay’s Jolly Dog Stores have offered $2,000 for the winner of this month’s 8 Tuff Miles Race.
Runners/walkers/joggers can register at various businesses on island or online at http://8tuffmiles.com/register.htm. Every entrant gets a T-shirt.
Last year, race organizer Peter Alter said 589 people finished the race; this year he expects 700 entries. When Alter began organizing the event in 1997, there were 21 participants.
The 8.375 mile course begins in the parking lot behind the National Park Visitors Center and ends near Skinny Legs in Coral Bay.
