Photography

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.
