We've got some great stuff that we'll be getting all the runners, and you'll be able to get in on the fun, even if you can't make it out to the race. You'll submit your time by end of day on September 2nd, and we'll post your results compared to everyone else running the Virtual Race. Shirts and medals are all mailed 1st thing after the weekend.
In order to keep the race course thin, to provide everyone with plenty of time to finish, and to allow participants to get an early start; we will have three start times available.
The official start time for the event will be 6:30 am, with additional waves at 6:00 am & 5:30 am.
Because of the extended time for traffic control, there will be a $5.00 fee for each additional 30 minutes you register for (before the official start at 6:30 am).
The earlier waves will also be limited in size to 50 participants each.
Our preferred Hotel for this Event is the Hilton Garden Inn!
