Course Support:

This will be a cup-less event. Water will be available at the starting/finish area and halfway point.

A cup-less race means that there will be no paper water cups between the start and the finish line like you’d typically see at road races.  We're trying to do our part and reduce waste as much as possible.

There will be water available in the start area. On the course, there will be a self-serve refill station. Water, refreshments and food will be available the finish line.

Police and course marshals will direct racers at major turns. The course will be clearly marked.

Post Race Events:

The awards ceremony will take place shortly after race's end, along with music, refreshments, fresh baked goods and fruit. Mission BBQ will provide post-race food, including their famous BBQ sliders.
