The starting line for the half marathon will be at Bicentennial Park.  Portable restrooms are available at the park, and last minute instructions will be provided at the starting areas.  As a courtesy to other runners, please line up according to estimated race time, allowing the fastest runners to the front.  The Half Marathon will start at 7:00am.  

Timing

The races will be chip-timed. Your time will begin when your cross the starting line, not at the start gun, and will stop when you cross the finish line. Timing will be coordinated by Wright on time racing.  You chip will be attached to your race bib and does not need to be returned at the end of the race. 


Road Safety

We have done our best to mark any hazards along the race trail.  A good portion of the race is on unpaved trail and may have uneven ground.  Race volunteers will be present at all major intersections and turns on the course to help guide runners and stop traffic when necessary.  We have posted caution signs at road crossings and ask that you be aware of road traffic around you.  Please watch for cars when crossing the streets, and follow the direction of all safety officials and volunteers in order to ensure your safety.  There will be a race crew member following the last runner of the half marathon who will be able to provide emergency assistance and call for help if needed. 

Course Time Limits

The half marathon course will remain open until 10:30 AM.  Any runners still on the course after that time will be considered pedestrians throughout the course duration.  To make it to the finish by this time, half marathon runners will need to average a 16:00 minute/mile pace.  This is equivalent to a very light jog, or brisk power walk.  Any participants still on the course after these cut off times may continue to proceed along the course route to the finish area, but aid station and traffic control will not be available.

Race Pacing

This race does not have pacers.  You can run at your own pace and enjoy the spectacular views.  

Aid & Medical Stations

There will be seven aid and/or medical stations along the race route (marked in black on the race map).  All of our aid stations will be supplied with electrolyte fluids and water.  Medical stations are noted in red on the race map and will be equipped with basic first aid supplies.  If you are in need of these items, please stop and ask the volunteers at the station and they will be able to help you.

Restrooms will be available at each of the parks (Barker Park in Pleasant View – Mile 1.8, Mountain View Mile 4.3, Equestrian Park Mile 6.3, Exit from Trail at Mile 8.5, 2300 North Mile 1, Barker Park Mile 13).  Mountain View (Mile 4.3) has the restroom closest to the race route.  The restrooms are in the buildings located at each park or a portable restroom.

There will be photographers at a few locations along the course to take pictures of your race experience. Be sure to smile, make a face, or strike a pose for the cameras as you go by.  Also make sure that your bib number is visible.  Photographers will also be at the finish line to take your photo in front of our finisher backdrop.
