Latest Update from Governor’s Order on 12/10 – While the order still states waves can still be up to 25, we will have waves closer to 10. More wave info will be sent on the night before the race. Please note specific check-in times for each event. Runners cannot check-in prior to their time. Limited t-shirts will be available for those who register within 12 days of the race. We encourage participants to bring their own water. Masks are expected during check-in, but are not expected during the actual race. We do recommend keeping them on you and make sure to maintain 6ft of social distancing whenever possible.
