This year we will be utilizing a rolling start system, starting individual runners at 5 second intervals. We will be starting the faster participants first designated by expected pace. The 5k will be going off first at 7:30AM, followed by the 10k and then the Half Marathon. We are using this format to space out runners on course, as well as lessen congestion at the start, finish, and parking areas.
More information on start times will come as we get closer to race day.Race Features
