Participants will be given a race bib with a timing device attached. The race bib will act as your entry card to access the event and post event party.
This is a chipped race.
Chips are embedded in the bib and will be activated upon crossing the start line.
Race bibs should be pinned, unmodified and fully visible on the front of your shirt throughout the entire race. Participants will receive their race bib with pins at race kit pick up.
We ask that participants write their full name, emergency contact information and any allergies or health conditions on the back of their race bib as this will assist emergency personnel should they be required.
Corrals will be set up to group runners based on the time they expect to complete their distance — it is your best estimate. Corralling participants is an important way we can keep runners safe and ensure a better experience for everyone. Runners will need to select a corral during the registration process.
Any participant wishing to change their corral information can do so up to August 26, 2016 by updating their Personal Fundraising Hub.
