All participants with strollers will be corralled at the back of the running field and will start once all runners and walkers have crossed the starting line.
No. We are considered a "fun run" because we are not able to offer official chip timing. We are hoping that this will change as our event continues to grow and our running field expands. There will be a clock available at the Start and Finish lines for you to calculate your time. However, we recommend personal watches to get your most accurate time.
