All registered runners will receive a high quality t-shirt. Shirt sizes are not guaranteed. Sorry, but Kids 1K shirts are for children registered for the Kids 1K Fun Run Event Only.
Timing results for the 5K & 10K divisions are based on chip times. Chip times start when you actually cross the start mat and end when you cross the finish mat. Winner awards are based on Gun Time in accordance with USTAF standards. You must be wearing your BIB to receive a time. Please note that you should wear your bib in an area on your front that is least impacted by sweat and moisture. The timing chips are highly sensitive to both.
Runners and walkers will be timed based on the event that they are registered for. If you decide to switch courses in the middle of the run, you will be timed on the event for which you registered. You can change your event designation at the registration center prior to the race start only. Post race changes and adjustments can not be made.
