Kids Fun Run: There will be a non-competitive fun run for kids beginning at 8:30 am. Medals awarded to all finishers.
Timing: The ChronoTrack timing system will be used to score the race. The system uses a disposable B-tag located on the back of the bib and records the exact time a runner crosses the starting line as well as the finish line, resulting in a new, or "chip" time for each runner. Overall awards will be based on the "clock time" and age group awards will be based on "chip time."
Water Stations: In addition to water at the start/finish line, water will be available on the course just past the half-way point.
Parking: Parking will be available in adjacent lots.
Volunteer Opportunities: Join in the fun as an event volunteer! This event relies on 50+ volunteers to be successful and we need YOUR help. Volunteer jobs include water station, race buffet, registration area, or course marshals on race day. We will also need volunteers at packet pick up. Please contact Lacey Conn at email@example.com for more information or to volunteer.
