RaceDay is looking forward to your time in Culver on September 12. The forecast is calling for mostly sunny with a high of 76 in Culver.
Race procedures based on current CoVid information:
*We are thankful to organize this race, and desire to be mindful of everyone, including the Farmer’s Market vendors and customers in the park.
Every runner will be provided a disposable face mask in their race packet, and we ask that you bring your own mask, too. Please use the disposable mask when you come to the start line. Once you start the race, you can discard your masks on the ground within the first 50 meters if you wish (volunteers will clean them up).
**Cups of water/gatorade will now be available on the course. If you feel more comfortable with your own water container, water will be also poured.
***After the race, we ask that you stay socially distanced while waiting for awards ceremony. When you get your post-race pancakes and when receive your medals, please wear your personal mask.
Thank you in advance for your considerate actions.
Our course this year will be a bit different because of CoVid and a small amount of road construction. For the safety of students, Culver Academies is closed to the public, so we will race only on the roads. A small stretch of one way traffic on the south edge of town will be navigated, with volunteers present to direct traffic. The race courses are well designed and will be marked every mile, with ample aid stations with water (miles 2, 4, 6, 7, 8.5 and 10), gatorade (miles 7 and 10) and port-a-jons at miles 1, 3, 4.5, 7 and 10.
Packet Pickup and Registration
Early packet pickup will be Friday night at the town park, from 7-8 pm. Look for the Race Day banner - you won't miss it! Packet pickup on race day will begin at 7:00 a.m. outside the Depot at the town park. Day of registration will also open at 7:00 a.m. Price for day of registration will be $30.00 for the 5K, $35.00 for the 10K and $50 for the Half Marathon. The address for your GPS is 615 E Lake Shore Dr, Culver, IN 46511. That will get you to the race area.
Parking will only be allowed on side streets to the north of the starting line and the Culver Town Parking Area just North of the Rootbeer Stand by the water tower. Parking will not be permitted in the park as those are reserved for our town guests who are attending the farmer's market.
The race will begin and end at the Culver Town Park Railroad Depot, located on beautiful Lake Maxinkuckee. The 5k/10k and Half Marathon races will start at the same time (8:30 eastern standard). The start line has ample space for all runners and runners will be asked to wear masks at the start line. The race is chip-timed, so if you feel comfortable toward the back, away from other runners, your time will not activate until you cross the start line. We will make announcements/countdown to start beginning at 8:10.
Every finisher will receive a beautifully crafted custom medal of the lake. And, the shirts are great, too for those of you who registered on time for a shirt. Awards will be given to the overall male and female winners for all races, along with the master's male and female champions for all races. Each age group (5 year increments) top 3 will be receiving an award too! Awards ceremony will begin at the end of each race.
At the end of the race, Park and Shop Grocery will provide bananas and water. After the race, Frida’s restaurant will provide pancakes, and the Lakehouse Grille will provide beer and pop on tap - your bib will be your ticket for the pancake and the drinks so be sure to hang on to those bibs!
We also hope you plan on getting away for the weekend at Culver, Plymouth and Marshall County. Marshall County has many great restaurants and places to visit. ENJOY CULVER!
