Race Start

Starting Corral

When you arrive to the race start, you will see the starting corral.   The corral will be quite long, so please find your appropriate area in the corral.   There will be a team of stewards at the start area who will be more then happy to help you find your corral position.     There will also be signs along the corral, with estimated finish times.   Remember that your pacers will also be in the starting corral.  Look out for the balloons.  This should give you an indication of where you should position yourself.

Smart Start

It is for the benefit of everybody if you follow the times indicated.    It gets very busy once the clock starts, and it can have an effect on everybody’s times if you are in the wrong zone.   If you are targeting a Sub 85 run, then it could hinder you, if you are up at the sub 65 section.   Nobody likes to start a race with people running up their back.  If you locate yourself in the 85-minute section, then you are running with like-minded people who will all help you achieve your goal.
