The Rocket City Microthon is the most (the only?) prestigious event for the least elite non-athletes. Put on your numbered bib (just like the real racers!) and race from Straight to Ale to Yellowhammer Brewery. Or vice-versa, we're not all that organized. Run, walk, crawl, skip, roll - whatever it takes to get across the 0.12K Butler Green at Campus 805 and claim your coveted Finisher's Medal (aka bottle opener) and oval "0.12K" sticker to let other drivers know "Hey I'm better than you." Then go claim your free beer at either Straight to Ale or Yellowhammer! Maybe put on your race T-shirt first so everyone will be impressed with your non-athletic prowess.
If you find yourself in a mid-race slump, there will be lots of options for resting and recharging at the R&R tents along the way.
