Important Race Details

Light required: Headlamp or flashlight is required during this race

Race Field: Limited

Race Start: This will be a chip timed start, your time does not start until you cross the line.  In order to spread out runners and reduce the “hole-shot” backup, we will start racers in waves of approximately 30-40 racers at a time. Both distances will start together. Please self seed according to the announcer’s instructions.

Chip Timing: All distances are chip timed. The chips are attached to the back of your bib and are disposable, so we do not need them back. Please wear your bibs on the front of your body and do not cover with heavy coats.

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. Available at the start/finish and at 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.
