A Note from Our Race Directors
Bibs & Corrals
Corral Stickers on Bib: Your race bib will have a colored turkey or sticker in the corner. This sticker indicates your starting corral, which will be marked with matching colored flags. Please find your way to the proper corral. This will make for a more enjoyable race for you as well as those faster and slower than you. Always be mindful that even as you may be temporarily slowed by someone in front, you may be slowing someone behind.
Race Bib Timing Device: Your race bib has a timing device attached to the back. Be sure to have your bib pinned to the front of your outermost layer of clothing. This means your race time does NOT start until your bib crosses the start line. So, don’t be in a rush, just move steadily towards the start.
Chip Timing: We will use chip time for all awards. Please be aware that your competition may be in front or behind you.
Corral Movement: These corrals will fill smoothly if everyone is patient. Trust us, this works well - as long as everyone moves as a group.
5-Mile Red Corral
If you are in the RED corral, you will start when Mayor Collins blows the airhorn, which will be at 8:30am.
5-Mile Blue Corral
The BLUE corral will slowly fill towards the start line, following the red corral, and begin their race once they reach the start line.
5-Mile Green Corral
The GREEN corral will slowly fill towards the starting area and begin once they reach the start line.
You will be lining up behind the five milers in the YELLOW corral
Please do not push, shove, bite, scratch, hiss, or run up onto the sidewalks. If you go around the start barriers, you will not cross the mats and will not be timed.
