The Fall Cram Session will begin and end with a general session. In between, the three sessions will be divided into three tracks - RunSignup (for race directors), GiveSignup (for nonprofits) and RaceDay (for certified timers). You do not have to stick with the same track throughout the day and can move between them to the sessions that are most appropriate for you. Want to see two at once? We'll record the sessions for you to catch up on later.
The schedule is below, with a descriptions and a downloadable PDF version at the bottom of the page.
