Time Limit

The time limit to complete the course is calculated at 10 minutes per kilometer.  Starting at the half way mark, if a participant does not reach a km mark by this calculated time, the participant will be asked to move to the sidewalk and finish the race as a pedestrian, unassisted by race support.  Participants are asked to familiarize themselves with the course route if this situation might be a possibility to them.  We wish to minimize traffic disruption caused by our event, and value the support of Police services regarding participant safety, and trust you understand our position.
