Race Day Events has always offered a cash prize for breaking a course record at the New Year’s Day Dash and to keep things interesting, we roll it over from year to year.  So, the question is what to do with the new course and the records.  What fun would it be to trash all of that history, so we have decided to keep on keeping on.  This means that the prize of $500 for breaking the male course record and $100 for breaking the female course record!
