How it works:
You’ll receive a playing card at registration, and a card at midway. You can take one more card at the finish if you so choose. The object is to hit 21. Number cards are worth their face value. Jacks, queens, & kings are worth 10, & aces can be used as 1 or 11. The number of entries determines the jackpot, which will be given away in Foot Rx Gift Certificates. If there are multiple winners, we will split the pot among the winners. Your finishing place does not matter in this race, so go as fast or as slow as you like!
