Please wear your bibs on the front of your body and do not cover with heavy coats.  Results are available immediately following your finish online, by text or on the monitor (check the back of your bib for details).

Parking: There is parking available in the park. Use the beach area lots first. Parking along the road is ok, but do not drive on the grass.

Facilities: Portables Only, at the start and each aid station


NOTE:  Overall Top 3 Awards are presented as soon as the 3rd place finisher in each group finishes.  Age Group awards can be picked up at the awards table after you finish, just check the results screen and look for your place in the Age Group column.
