EVENT DATE & TIME
Thursday, June 17, 2021 • Race Start - 6:20 pm
Start times and cones will NOT be assigned ahead of time. We will still have a rolling wave start, however, we have changed it up a bit.
Upon arrival, go directly to the bib-pickup tents, retrieve your bib, and proceed to the coned wave start area. If you picked up your bib ahead of time then just proceed to the coned wave start area. Our staff will be there to greet you, ask your race pace, then direct you to a coned area according to your chosen pace. All cones will be spaced out to ensure social distancing. As per usual, faster-paced participants will head out first.
We will be sending out participants 5 at a time. At the start/finish line, you will be directed to stand at one of the 5 marked areas that will be staggered and spaced 6 feet apart. Each group of five runners will be sent off 10 seconds apart. There will be no congregating at the start/finish line area.
