The recent opening of California and the removal of many of the social distancing requirements that were put in place at the time we submitted out permit requests means that we now been able to open up the race and have a regular start window.
The start line for the 2021 Firecracker will open at 8:00am and will remain open until 10:50am.
We will do a group, chip-start, at 8:00 am on race day. That way those of you who want to run together at the same time can do that. Your time will not actually be recorded until you cross the chip mats but you will be able to start at the same time.
The start line will remain open until our originally posted closing time of 10:50 am to accommodate people who don’t want to start in the larger group, or who have work or family obligations earlier in the morning.
It's the best of both worlds – a group start for people who want to run together and a socially distanced start for those who don’t want to start with the larger group. The finish line will close at noon.
