To ensure a smooth and consistent run, this race has implemented wave starts.
What is a wave start and how does it work?
Wave starts are designed to reduce race start congestion and improve your race day running experience. In a wave start, runners start in groups at 2 minute intervals. This way you can run with others who are similar in speed. A wave start will allow you plenty of space along the course, at the aid stations and at the finish line, without affecting your chip time or the time you have to complete the race. On race day you will line up under / behind the banner that best fits your estimated running pace per mile, see chart Click Here

Buy some last minute race day goodies that we may have for sale like custom race even logo sweat shirts, bags, etc. This is your last chance to register for this race.... NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION
Can I pickup my bib and chip on race day?
Yes but get there early because there will be hundreds of people trying to get into a small area all at the same time.
