There is only one traffic intersection crossing Broadway & Benjamin Pickett. Although this intersection will be monitored by Police, please use caution when crossing.
Attached to the finish structure this year will be a corral for athletes to catch their breath, return timing chips, receive their medals, a water bottle and to receive immediate medical attention (if necessary) before reconnecting with friends, family and spectators. Spectators will have great views of the finish!
Race Number Display
The race number must be displayed on the front at all times during the run portion of the race. This is primarily for safety, but also makes it easier for the Announcer and photographers to recognize athletes crossing the Finish Line.
Athletes planning to wear layers should keep in mind that the race number needs to be visible at all times. Do not pin the number to a layer that may be removed. If the race number is left along the course or in Transition, the athlete will need to go back and get it BEFORE finishing the race.
