To guarantee your race shirt and medal you need to pre-register.  Walk-on’s are welcome but are not guaranteed a race shirt and medal.

While the course is the same for both the day and night waves, the night wave will have minimal lighting. Night wave participants will receive a glow bracelet. Flashlights or headlights are recommended but not required for the night waves. Sunset time on race day is 4:47 PM.

What is a Gain-a-Life Station?

The Gain-a-Life Stations are challenges you can choose to complete for a chance to gain an extra flag.

May I Gain-a-Life if I already have 3 flags?

No, you will only receive the flag after completing the challenge if you have less than 3 flags remaining.
