We are excited to welcome back Vector Timing as our official timing vendor. Vector Timing uses disposable timing chips. The timing chip will be attached to the back of each runner’s bib and does not need to be returned at the end of the race. It is important that you do not fold, wrinkle, or otherwise alter your race bib. It is also important that you wear your bib on the front of your shirt. Incorrect placement of your bib and timing chip may result in missing or inaccurate results. Your official time will start as you pass the start line and stop as you cross the finish line. Do not trade bibs with another athlete. Bibs are only valid for the distance they were purchased.
Starting area for the full marathon and half marathon will be congested and will pose a risk to have vehicles up at the start areas. There will be water, Gels, and Electrolyte to drink, at the full and half-marathon starting areas.
Both the half-marathon and the marathon starting lines will have gear drops. Your race bag can double as a gear drop bag; please bring it with you to the starting line if you intend to drop-off a bag. Clearly, mark your bag with your name and bib number. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR BAG ON THE BUS. A volunteer will collect your bag, and we will have a truck take your belongings back to the finish area. We will have an area at the finish where you can retrieve your bag based upon your bib number. Please ensure that your bag is clearly marked. This will enable us to return your bag to you quickly and efficiently. Clothing bags not picked-up on race day will be held at the Rescue Mission for 7 days and after that will be donated. While we take the utmost care with all items left at the gear drop areas, DO NOT put valuable or expensive items like cameras, car or house keys, cell phones, money, watches/jewelry, expensive clothing, GPS devices, or otherwise in the gear drop bags. We cannot be held liable for lost items.
There is not a clothing drop-off for the 5Ks.
