We are planning to have a group warm up session at the start line at 1:00pm. All participants are welcome to take part in this free service.

Timing:

All 10K competitors will be timed. The 5K walk participants will not be timed. Timing will be done using chips embedded in athletes bib number. Please make sure to pin your race number bib on your front and clearly visible throughout the race and in particular at the finish. If you do not wear the bib correctly you may not be timed. If you provide a mobile phone number when registering, you will receive a text message with your official race time after the race. There is no cut off time to complete either the 5K Fun-run or 10K Race. There is a 2 hour cut off for timing the 10K race and we can not guarantee that times over 2 hours will be recorded.
