RCGC Split The Pot Prediction Run - March 24

The Runners' Club of Greater Cincinnati will be hosting a Split the Pot Prediction Run on Sunday March 24, 2019 at 13 Below Brewery. Run distance will be 2.5 miles.
The way that the Prediction Run works is as follows:
It is a race against yourself. Your goal is to get as close as to your predicted time as possible without any electrical, biological, or mechanical device to tell how well you are matching your predicted time.
 Since it is on the West Side for 2019, the run is a Split the Pot where half the early registration fees go to the Top Male and Top Female closest to their predicted time. Visit the registration page for more information.
