After 2 PM, the trolley will still take you to Chimborazo Park, just be sure to tell the driver.
Course Info
Important Note: The first portion of this race takes place in the city, so while finish times will be provided, runners should be prepared for timing impacts including stops at crossings/intersections, yielding to traffic and staying on sidewalks whenever possible. Police and volunteers will be placed along the course to help runners safely navigate the course, but runners are responsible for their own safety.
