According to MHP Development Director Cathy Stahl, those wanting to participate are encouraged to register online at www.mahaskahealth.org. “The registration deadline is July 9 to guarantee an event T-shirt,” Stahl said. “Participants will find this to be a well-run event and we’re able to provide results very quickly thanks to electronic chip timing.”
