5K: 1 hour
This is timing tag time, not gun time. Course time limits begin when the last participant for each distance crosses the start line.
All marathoners will be placed in the blue wave. Therefore, the 5 hour time limit begins when the last blue start participant crosses the start line, approx. 4:45 PM
It is imperative for ALL participants to start in their assigned corrals
If a marathoner starts in the green or yellow start, you will not have the full 5 hours to complete the event.
Diversion times and locations for each distance are noted below. You must adhere to course staff implementing these diversions.

The Medical Team is a dedicated group of multidisciplinary medical professionals, available to help assess your race day medical needs and administer acute first aid when necessary.
Numerous medical stations will be located at the finish as well as at the start and along the course. Look for large RED and WHITE tents and for our medical volunteers dressed in RED shirts for complimentary help before, during and after the race.
Race timing is by Sportstats using chip on the bib technology which will automatically record participants’ times at the start, at certain splits along the courses and at the finish. Sportstats will be using disposable tags, glued onto your race bib, which allows you to walk away from the finish without the need to have your tag collected.
Please Note: All participants in the race must wear their race bib with the tag intact in order to have their times recorded. No bib = no time! Please make sure the race bib is pinned at torso height at the front and is visible throughout the race.
