Corral and Rolling Wave Starts

Due to COVID requirements, it might be necessary to start off in waves. We are asking that you enter an estimated finish time for the 10k and 5k. this will help us gather and organize on race morning. This is an honor system and will help with the flow and keep us organized based on COVID requirements. The race director and timer will have the right to cross check at random your estimated finish time based year results in the Athlinks system. All times will be based on Chip Time and when your chip crosses the mat.

On race morning, please align in the 10k, 5k and Fun Run wave you are assigned. The race director and timer have the right to combine or expand corrals and waves to accommodate CDC Local and state guidelines. If you miss starting with your assigned wave, you will be allowed to join in the next wave that has available space.

The race will start promptly at designated times. Please be in your corral 10 min prior to race start time. Each wave will go off approx 1 min after the prior wave.

Kids Fun Run races. Parents, please talk to your child prior to race day about the need to be socially distant. that mean if they are close enough to touch another child that is not a family member, they are too close! Your child will be disqualified and or pulled from the race if they touch or push another child.
