All Day 20K Race Route
You will follow the same route as everyone in the 5K. Once you are finished with each race you will follow the route set for you back to the start line. The route from the Finish back to the Start will be clearly marked with signage. Once you exit the Secure Zone, continue straight down Carlsbad Village Dr, then make a left on Harding Street. All Day 20K gear check and refreshments will be located in the All Day 20K Lounge on Grand Street.
All Day 20K Gear Check
All Day 20K participants can check gear at the 20K tent.
If you are participating in the All Day 20K, as well as partaking in the Team Competition, the scored race is that which correlates to your age.
For example: If you are a 54-year old male, your finishing time in the Masters Men race will count towards the team competition award scoring.
Awards & Medals
All Day 20K participants are still eligible for individual age group awards and medals. Age division awards are determined by tag time. To be timed and eligible for awards, you must run in the appropriate age group race, wear the tag on your shoe and cross the timing mat at the start and finish lines.
For All Day 20K participants, the scored race is that which correlates to your age.
For example: If you are a 54-year old male, your finishing time in the Masters Men race will count towards the age award scoring.
If you are one of the first 250 people to cross the finish line in your appropriate age race, you may pick up your ‘First 250 Medal’ at the Awards tent one hour after that race. We will have your medal at the Awards tent after your last completed race. After you’ve completed your final race, please stop by the Awards tent on Roosevelt Street to pick up your All Day 20K Finisher’s Medal.
There are no additional Awards for the All Day 20K. It is an endurance challenge, not a competition.
