There are also two huge raffles (must be present to win): a free runner/walker raffle, and a separate ticket-purchase raffle with one-of-a-kind items, autographed memorabilia, and collectibles from running legends Bill Rodgers, Joan Benoit Samuelson, Frank Shorter, and others. The raffle will also feature clothing, gift certificates, and more.
