This will be a wave start race. Waves of 10 people will start every 30 seconds. There will be 10 rows of cones with 10 cones per row spaced 10 feet apart. You will self assign your wave on race day by selecting the wave and standing next to the cone. The announcer will start each wave. We ask that people social distance at least 6 feet while in the park and wait until 10 minutes prior to select your wave. Your time will not start until you cross the start line. As you make your way from the wave to the start, please continue to socially distanced by 10 feet.

Once finished, please clear the race area so we can bring in the second race. 

Passing While Racing
The path is 8-25 feet wide providing plenty of social spacing. Participants are asked to run single file, on the right side of the path & spaced 6 feet apart. When passing a slower participant, participants should shout “passing on your left”. The participant will pass, leave six feet, and then merge right.

It is a huge park so please maintain 6' of distance at all times.

Tshirts

The shirts are gender specific, dry wick and those registered noon June 24 are guaranteed a custom race shirt.  After that, shirts be available while on line supplies last. Any extra shirts will be distributed after the race on a first come first serve basis.

Aid Stations

Because we cannot guarantee a touch-free aid station, there are no aid stations on course or at the finish line. You should bring your own water.

There will be an on-course bag drop area for you to leave your nutrition and hydration items. It is located on the paved path between the park entrance and the boat launch. Please place your bag in the designated bag drop area before the race and space it 10’ from other bags. Both sides of the path can be used, but please place them on the grass and not the path. This is a self-placement and self-serve bag drop. We will not be transporting bags on course. Don’t worry, there is plenty of time and space for you to self-place your bag. Besides, do you really want some yahoo touching your water bottle?
