Race Morning

The big day!


Participants will travel through beautiful grassy paths and orchard rows. This course is marked with flags, arrows, cones and other signage. Simply follow the signs and you won’t get lost.

We will have a water station near the 1.5-mile mark. We will also have water available before and after the race at packet pick-up. 


You were separated into corrals during registration. We base this on expected race paces to keep everything organized and running smoothly (pun intended). It is important to stick to your correct corral. If you cannot remember your corral assignment, you can check the sticker on the front of your bib or log in to your RunSignUp account.

All participants will be lined up at the start line by 9:45am. Simply look for the tall teardrop banners that read 'Corral A', 'Corral B', and so on. Line up behind your corral leader near the start area. 

Right at 10AM, we will release Corral A. As each one clears, we'll slowly move the next corral forward into the gates. We will be sending a corral off every few minutes. Once the final corral is sent through, the start line will close and you will not be permitted onto the course. 

We welcome all ages and abilities! If you plan on walking the course, please ensure you start with the later corrals and please stick to the right-hand side so others may pass you safely!


Parking is free and will be held on-site in grassy lots at the top of the hill. Upon arrival, follow the long driveway to the very top of the hill and follow signs. You will see parking attendants as you near the cidery. Follow their directions to ensure you are parked in an efficient manner. Space is limited, so carpooling is encouraged!

If it rains prior to race day, the parking lot will get muddy. In this situation, arriving in a truck or SUV is advised.

We've mentioned it a few times, but one more for good measure: we advise you to arrive by to 8:30 AM so you can avoid traffic lines. 


We will have Hungry Apple stations at each mile marker, indicated by a teardrop banner. For those of you registered for Hungry Apple, be sure to stop by each station for a delicious donut! We will also have water available to wash down the tasty treats. This water is only for Hungry Apple Participants. For all other runners, we have water available at the beginning and end of the race, as well as at the water station near the 1.5 mile mark!
