To allow for social distancing at the start we will be scoring all runners based on 'chip time'.  This is your individual measurement from your start to finish.  We will have an open start line from 8:00 till 8:30 a.m.  Elite runners going for the win may self seed themselves to the front.  There is no need to stand crowded together at the start line.  

The official start time will be 8:00 a.m. The start line will remain open for late starts till 8:10 a.m.  Course will close at 9:30 a.m.

Award Ceremony: Awards will be available for pickup at the conclusion of the event, or throughout the following week at the Marine Mammal Stranding Center.  All participants will also receive a custom finisher certificate, emailed at the conclusion of the event.
