In order to ensure that every person has a great race experience, full and half marathon participants will start in waves by color corrals to reduce bottlenecks. Your wave corral will be walked up to the start line, and once the horn for your color sounds, you can take off!

Your bib number and corral assignment will be based on the anticipated finish time that you provide when you register. You will be advised of your bib and corral assignment in a pre-race email approximately 10 days before the day of your event. Changes in corral assignments can be made at the Expo if space is available in your desired corral.
Drinking water and port-a-johns will be available near the starting line.
Be sure to have your number clearly visible on the front of your body.
