RACE START TIMES
6 hours for all events. For safety and insurance reasons there are no early starts. Registered marathon participants who are slower than 3 hours and 15 minutes at the 12 mile marker will be directed to the finish line for the half marathon. This is a safety issue. Those participants who feel they will take longer than 6 hours should be prepared that police support and aid stations will not be available past this pace (approximately 13:45 min/mile). You will proceed at your own risk.
The race will be timed using disposable tags attached to your bibs. You must wear your bib number on the front of your clothing so that we can see and record your number as you cross the finish line. The race bibs should be unaltered and not covered by any garment. Check the information on your packet label to make sure it is correct. If not, notify a race official at packet pickup. There will be timing mats at the start, 6.1, 13.1, 19 mile markers as well as at the finish line.
INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY
Race officials may cancel, delay, or change the event in case of extreme weather or other conditions that may affect the safety and health of the participants.
SEVERE WEATHER POLICY: In the event of severe weather, the race director may decide to shut down the course. Should that occur, volunteer course marshals will be released from their positions; runners will be notified and asked to take shelter at the next aid station and wait for a shuttle bus to take them to the finish line. If you refuse to take shelter and continue on the course, you do so at your own risk.
