Starting Line


Start Line Corrals

To ensure a smooth and safe start for all race participants, the field will be separated into three (3) seeded corrals.  We ask that you enter the gate that corresponds to the letter on your race bib (i.e. 'CORRAL C').  Your corral number is based on the estimated finishing time you provided us on your registration form.  Please look for pacing signage and helpful volunteers at the Start Line to assist you in entering the correct corral.

Seeded corrals with the fastest in the front and progressively slower runners/walkers behind will minimize the amount of unnecessary passing during the first few miles and make for a safer and more enjoyable experience and event for everyone.  You may start with a slower corral than you have been assigned; however you cannot start with a faster corral than you have been assigned.
