Portable toilets, fluid replacement and first aid will be available on the course. Certified medical personnel will be available at the start and finish areas of the race.


Timing System

State of the art ChronoTrack systems will be used to record participant finishing times. The ChronoTrack system uses a B-Tag, which is affixed to the back of your bib (race number), allowing you to walk away from the finish without the need to have your tag collected.

*Please note: All participants must wear their bib in order to have their times recorded. Race Results will be posted on our results page shortly after the race.


Gear Check

Gear check will be available for all participants on race day. Please tear off the gear check tag from the bottom of your race bib and attach it to your bag.


Photography

Participants will receive FREE downloadable race photos!

There will be photographers along the course snapping your photo for some great action shots, but make sure to stop by the finish line festival to take your official finisher's photo!

*Please note: Your race bib is how your photos will be tagged to yourself, so make sure to wear it on race day in a clear visible spot on the front of your clothing. You will receive an email when your photos are available for viewing, complete with easy links to share on Facebook and Twitter!


Runner Secure Zone/Finish Line

Once you cross the finish line you'll enter a Runner Secure Zone - a fenced off area for race participants only. You will receive water, sports drink, and food.
