New 5K Start Line Corrals:
What is a “Start Line Corral”?
The start line corral system allows for a smooth race start for participants of varying athletic abilities. You should choose a corral based on your estimated pace / finish time which will allow you to start with other participants of similar running or walking pace. Everyone who has paid the extra $5.00 will receive a timing chip, the corral system will not affect the timing of your race as your actual race time will not start until you cross the starting mat. Look for the following signs on race morning to ensure you are in the appropriate corral.

Start Line Corrals Signs (based on finish time)
• RUN 21:45 minutes or less / 7minute per mile pace or faster
• Walkers only

The “RUN 21:45 minutes or less” Corral will be a roped off section and will have volunteers assist with entry into this corral.
Runners expecting to finish the 5K with a finish time greater than 21:45 should line in behind the roped area.
Walkers will line up behind runners.

NOTE: If you are participating with a stroller and/or children, we ask that you keep your children with you at all times and that you start from the back of the “WALK ONLY” corral. This will allow your family members, and our other participants, a safer race experience.

How to wear your Bib Number and Timing Chip:
5K participants (that paid the $5 extra) will be Chip Timed to process race results and your 5K finish time will be posted for you to see. [Click Here] to see details on how to wear your Bib-Tag Timing Chip. Please wear your Bib Number on the FRONT of your shirt during the race. [Example] Remember to bring your Bib Number Race day. No Bib Number means no recorded time. The timing chip is located on the back side of your Bib Number.

5K – Awards (for runners that paid to be Chip Timed):
Top 3 Overall Male / Female
Top 1 Overall Master Male / Female (40 and older)
Top 3 in Age Groups Male / Female:
