IMPORTANT: We ask that all participants please ride the buses to the start line. There is very little parking at both the start line for the half marathon and the 5 mile races. If we get too many vehicles trying to drop off runners then it may cause a delay in the shuttles which may cause a delay in the race. We also will not provide transportation back to the start line after you finish your run. We have broken the half marathon into 2 waves. We have done this 1.) to create gaps in the runners for vehicles and 2.) to make sure all participants are able to make it to the start.
Please fully review the event and bus schedule below.
