Our designated course completion time has been set at 3 hours and 30 minutes. Commencing at 7:30 AM, the race clock concludes its timing at 11:00 AM.
All events are gun timed. Meaning we will start the clock when the horn sounds and record your time as you cross the finish line. For this reason, your bib needs to be worn on the front of your body at all times.
Every participant, without exception, will proudly claim a finisher's medal, a symbol of your triumph etched in metal. But that's not all – as you cross that finish line, a treasure trove of finish line goodies will be yours to savor, a delightful celebration of your accomplishment.
Capture the moment forever with our gift of free downloadable race photos – snapshots that freeze your journey in time, allowing you to relive the joy, the dedication, and the sheer exhilaration. Photos are typically posted within 24 hours of the event.
Curious about your performance? Fear not. Race results will be meticulously tabulated and promptly posted on our website, a mere 10 hours after the race concludes. The thrill of anticipation is fleeting, as we're committed to keeping you informed and satisfied.
