Event Description

Enjoy beautiful outdoor setting at our event.  All courses will be run on a looped course at the Scenic White Tail Preserve.  The course is on a partially shaded, non-technical 10ft+ wide trail that encircles the preserve, shooting ranges, and nearby field.

Race Format: To comply with CDC guidelines, the event will be moving to a staggered start, time trial format.   Prior to the start, racers will voluntarily group based on anticipated average race pace (per mile).  At 9:00am, one "gun" start will release the first two racers from the start line.  The remaining pairs of racers will be spaced 10' feet apart.  The second (and remaining) pair(s) of racers will approach the start line (walking) and will start once the first two racers pass a designated point approximately 50-100 yards from the start line.  This process will continue until all racers have left the start line.  The race will be scored utilizing actual chip time, as measured from your individual race bib as it crosses the timing start threshold through the finish line. 

Packet Pickup: Will be available SATURDAY prior to the event, and on race day starting at 8:00 a.m..  

Award Ceremony: There will not be a physical award ceremony after the race.  Over all awards will still be be made available for pickup after the conclusion of the event.  Age Group Award certificates will be emailed out after the last runners have finished.
