*Emergency Race Bib Pick-up is available on Race Morning from 7:30am-8:30am. We strongly recommend utilizing Race Bib Pick-Up on Friday and Saturday to ensure your registration is correct and you receive your correct shirt size; however if you cannot make it, we will have your race bib available on race morning from 7:30am-8:30am. Distance changes are not permitted on race morning.


**Please be advised that the 10K and Half Marathon will be broken in to different starting waves. Each of these waves will start 60s apart to avoid congestion at the start. Runners will be chip-timed so this will make no difference to your overall time (your chip will start your time when you cross the starting mat). You will self-seed yourself according to wave times based on your projected finish time. There will be signs posted along the start chute with these times so please place yourself in the area you feel is the most appropriate to how your finishing time will be. If you are a novice runner and/or do not know your projected time, please start in the final wave of your race distance. 

*Schedule subject to change.  Please check back for schedule updates closer to the event.
