The Race Registration website is up, active and already has 7 entries. 
 
I don't know about you, but I will be running this race in historical clothing.  Most likely my vintage base ball uniform (1861). 

Hopefully, this will bring some attention to the Vintage Base Ball game we will be playing on July 25th during the encampment.
