Wave starts:
We will have three separate waves for the race this year. We will not assign waves ahead of time, so the waves will be self-seeded. We ask that anyone planning on running 29:00 or faster, line up in Wave 1. Anyone planning on running 29:01 or slower, please line up in Wave 2. Anyone planning on walking, please line up in Wave 3.
Participants planning on starting with Wave 2 or 3 will line up behind the Wave 2/3 signs. After Wave 1 starts, Wave 2 will be walked to the start line and runners in Wave 2 will start at 9:05. Wave 3 will be walked to the start at 9:08.
Remember, the race is chip timed, so your official time will not start until you cross the start line.

A certified 5K course complete with aid stations along the route.
