 Race Start/Wave Time Information:

The race will begin at 8 a.m.  In order to alleviate congestion on the course, we will start in waves of 10-15 minute intervals.  There will be 150-200 runners assigned per wave with approximately 10 -12 waves.  Your wave designator will be indicated on your bib when you pick up your race materials. Waves will be determined by your average mile runtimeand by random selection, if a time is not available. We will trust that you place yourself in the correct wavePLEASE do not get into a faster wave than you can run as this will cause congestion on the course. If you wish to run with friends / team members or family in a wave behind yours, you may move backwards into that wave.   

1-Mile Fun Run: The fun run will begin AFTER the last wave.

 RACE MATERIAL PICK-UP: Runners will receive race instructions, runner’s number, safety pins, and a commemorative shirt (register by Fri, Mar 25 to guarantee shirt).
