Participant Guide


We’re so glad you could join us! Please read through all the Participant Guide tabs, and get exCIDERed to have an amazing time!


-The event will be held at Albemarle CiderWorks (2545 Rural Ridge Ln, North Garden, VA 22959) on Saturday, April 13th.

-Parking will be on-site and free. Space is extremely limited so carpooling is advised. Please note, if it rains, the lots will be muddy! 

-All participants need to be lined up at the start line by 9:45AM. We will be sending off Corral A at exactly 10AM, with other corrals leaving every few minutes after. Nobody will be permitted to start once the final corral begins. 

-The number one question we receive is 'When should we arrive?' We advise arriving up to 2 hours prior to the race start in order to avoid lines. The closer to race time you arrive, the likelihood of lines for packet pick-up, parking, restrooms, etc. increases. If you wait until after 9:00 AM to arrive, expect heavy traffic and longer lines at packet pick-up.

-Not a runner, but still want to be part of the event? Try volunteering! For more information CLICK HERE!

-For the safety of all participants, strollers and/or wagons are not permitted on the course. They are welcome at the venue as spectators!
