              Race Day

What should you expect on race day?

Seize the Day is about supporting those we love with epilepsy and raising awareness. Walk, run, or roll your way across the finish line because most of all we hope you have FUN! And don't plan on running out after you finish the race because we have music, food, and games! You'll be able to meet other people living with epilepsy too!  Sugar Mill Pond has limited seating, so we do recommended brining outdoor chairs or blankets to sit on. We do allow tents as well, but we ask that you email [email protected] so we have keep track of how much space we need to reserve. Sugar Mill Pond does not allow tent stakes to be used. Please make sure you have sandbags.
