Staggered Start

  • Bring your own water if needed while running.
  • Individual water bottles will be available at the finish.  


  • Awards are NOT given by “net” time. They are based off the staggered starting times. The goal of staggered start is that most people should finish around the same time. It also gives older runners a head "start".
  • Top 15 finishers receive a medal.

Membership cards are sent within a week of receipt or given race day if received 14 days prior to event or not yet expired. 

  • The race directors reserve the right to accept or reject any entry.
