Battle of the Rattle 5K race was founded in 2005 by Johnno Lazetich and Jon Epstein.  The goal was to bring to Reno a new and exhilarating foot race; something that has never been done before. Yet the race's concept dates back to the beginning of time with  re-creating one of the worlds oldest challenge statements," I bet you cant beat me up that hill"

The is race is to benefit the Local Non-profit organization The Nevada Diabetes Association
