Registration for next June's Footstock races has been opened earlier than ever and for the first time includes the opportunity of gifting.

Race director Meredith McMorran says their registration platform provider offered the opportunity and they jumped on board.

"People can register just on their own with a regular type of registration, but they can also gift a registration, so we're excited about that new possibility," she says.

The 24th edition of Footstock is being held on June 4. It includes 5, 10, and 18k solo races as well as a growing 18k relay event and the extremely popular kids' triathlon.
