Wave Starts

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.

Course Cut Off

 Because of the nature of the event, the course will close at 10:30 am (4 hour race time).

 

Notes when running:

1. Run the tangents...that means always run the shortest possible route.

2.  If you want to walk or run slower, no problem...we just need you to run on the right so the faster participants can get through on the shortest path.

3.  Remember...it's a one mile loop, with the .1 or .2 going from the lap count to the finish.
