1K at 9:15 AM

**5K runners will be staggered from fastest at the front to slower runners and walkers towards the back. Runners will be sent out in waves at two-minute intervals. The waves will be pre-assigned and your assigned Wave will be indicated on your race bib. We will have the start area sectioned off with signs to direct runners to their assigned Wave. We will also be making announcements prior to the start of the race to assist runners as to how they should line up. When lining up for this event, please position yourself in your assigned wave as indicated on your race bib (Wave A, Wave B, Wave C, etc.). 

If you are running with a friend or family member that is assigned to a different Wave, you are welcome to start together in the later wave. Please don't move to an earlier Wave. Those with strollers should line up at the back of their assigned Wave. There will be chipped timing in use so your time DOES NOT start until you cross the start line.

Arrival Times:

  • 10K runners should plan to arrive by 7:15 AM for a 7:45 AM race start time.
  • 5K runners should plan to arrive by 7:20 AM. The parking garage at the Halcyon will close at 7:30 AM. Those arriving after 7:30 AM will need to park across Ronald Reagan Blvd and walk to the start/finish line (approximately ½ mile). See parking info below for more details.

Event will be held rain or shine.
