The Great Race History
The race started and ended at the Depot from 1977 to 1982. Sadly the Depot burned down July 26, 1982
1983-1986 races started and ended at the Depot site, party following at the Elk's Club
There were no races run from 1987 until 2001 when the Chamber of Commerce requested
Jack Potucek to revive the Great Race Relay!
The race course started in "Woods Park" (Harvey Street) in 2001
The race course moved to "South Park" in 2002
The race course was "tweeked" a couple of times until 2007
The race course has remained the same from 2008 to present
JacK Potucek has been the Racemaster every year
Black Oak Striders and the Greeno Flameouts have been in every race
