NEW FOR 2017! You also can score 2 points as a volunteer for DCSSA at the Door County Half-Marathon, Door County Triathlon or Fall 50 Relay.

The Door County Silent Sports Alliance will keep track of points.  The top 25 Overall runners, top 5 Youth runners ages 12 and under and the Top 5 Out-of-County (Non-youth) Runners, regardless of gender,  will receive distinctive  pottery awards made by Liz Butleror medals (youth) at the Post-season Party at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay. Remaining registered runners will be eligible for random prizes.
