It’s a 3-loop course along the Shore. You start running South and u-turn at 2nd water station. Where the U-turn sign is. Head back North towards the start/finish area and U-turn and head back South. Complete 3 loops and then finish. We will direct you to the start location on race day. The loop is 4.34 Miles long. Miles markers will be placed for every mile. Water tables will be placed at three locations on the loop providing you with 12 opportunities to pick up electrolyte drinks, water, and GU gels. Each will have music to keep you going. Smile and express yourself, photography and video throughout the event.
You MUST wear your BIB on your front torso to assure that you get timed. You will go over a timing mat for each loop so that you get timing splits for every loop. LIVE! Every time you go over the timing mat your time will be uploaded to our results page. Share this link with your family and they will see your time as you complete each loop.
We have two ceremonies, first for the top 3 male and female OVERALL. Shortly after we hold the age group ceremony. Live timing allows us to start the ceremony quickly so do not leave without your award or have a friend hold it for you. We do not mail awards.
