  1. For 2023, are there age categories 70-year-old range or divisions such as “Greyhounds” and “Clydesdales”.

    1. Hi Frank,

      No such senior age category divisions are available. There are weight divisions and wheelchair/assisted racer divisions.

      All other runners are placed in age-wise divisions but there aren’t special senior age divisions like greyhounds or clydesdales.
