20th Annual Rattlesnake Master Run for the Prairie - Results
On the first Sunday in November, Grand Prairie Friends sponsors and organizes the Rattlesnake Master Run for the Prairie. This 5K run/walk and 10K run allows local athletes an opportunity to race through the prairie at Urbana's Meadowbrook Park and to raise money and awareness of GPF's conservation mission. A wonderful cadre of volunteers spend many hours before and during race day to make sure everything runs smoothly.
Sunday morning, November 5, 2016, was a gray and drizzly day, but 172 participants still showed up and walked and ran. Chip timing was used for the first time.
The race results have been posted on the Secondwind Running Club web site and here (see below).
