Participants in this run/walk faced a decision before crossing Little River – run to the finish line wearing wet shoes and socks or carry shoes across and put them on again but losing time or drop shoes and socks off before crossing and run barefoot to the finish line? Race volunteers carried baskets of dry shoes and socks across the river that were then shuttled to the finish line to be picked up by participants.
