Race Changes

The deadline for changing distances is August 16 2018 or SELL OUT of that particular distance, whichever occurs first. Questions? Contact Customer Service

Switching from a LONGER distance to a SHORTER distance:

  • Before the event deadline: If you would like to switch from a longer distance to a shorter distance, simply email this request along with your name, surname, mailing address that you registered with and your new predicted finish time to Customer Service.
  • After the event deadline: If you decide to switch from a longer distance to a shorter distance, simply show up to the start line of the desired distance on race morning and your timing tag will reflect the change. You can visit the corral change table in the Check-In area of the Expo for information on the appropriate corral to start in. Please note the start time and location of your desired distance.

Switching from a SHORTER distance to a LONGER distance:

  • Before the event deadline: To upgrade from a shorter distance to a longer distance simply email this request along with your name, surname, mailing address registered with and your new predicted finish time to Customer Service. The early upgrade fee is $10 plus the cost difference between the fee that was paid at the time of the original registration and the desired distance’s fee at the time of original registration (processing fee is not used in calculating price difference).
  • After the event deadline:  If you would like to upgrade from a shorter distance to a longer distance, you will need to pay an upgrade fee at the Expo. Please pick up your assigned bib number and proceed to the “Solutions” table.

Corral Changes

The start line corral system allows for a smooth race start for participants of varying speeds. Based on the estimated finish time that you provide on your race entry form, you are assigned a race number and corresponding corral, along with other participants of similar running pace.

Before the event deadline: If you would like to change your corral/predicted finish time for your race, simply email your request along with your first name, last name, mailing address that you registered with, and your new predicted finish time to Customer Service.

After the event deadline: If your training has gone better than expected and you would like to move up to a faster corral, pick up your race number at the Health & Fitness Expo and then proceed to the “Corral Change” table to be re-assigned to the appropriate corral. To move back to a slower corral, simply start in that corral on race morning. No official corral change is necessary.

Baggage/Gear Check

The bag you received at the Expo is your gear bag for race day. On race morning, attach your gear tag (attached beforehand to your bib) to your gear bag before you leave it at gear check, where bib numbers will be written on several school busses. The school busses will be placed in bib order. After the race, reclaim your checked bag at the designated gear check area before 3:00 pm.

DO NOT leave valuables, cash or jewelry in your gear bag. The event is not responsible for any lost items. Gear bags must be claimed before close of the Finish Line Festival on race day.

Wave Start

In an effort to provide every one of our participants with as comfortable a run as possible, a wave start will be used. Participants are assigned to an appropriate corral based on the projected finishing time submitted on their entry form.

When the gun fires, the first corral will be released. The rest of the participants will be held at the start line.

At pre-determined intervals the next corral will be released.

By using this staggered starting method, the pack will be spread out and allow every runner to settle into their racing rhythm from the first step right to the finish line.

Time Limits

To ensure that roads reopen to vehicular traffic at the scheduled times, the course time limits will be STRICTLY ENFORCED. Participants must maintain a pace faster than the course time limits in order to complete the race on closed city streets.

The time limits are:

  • 6 hours for the marathon
  • 3 hours 45 minutes for the half marathon
  • 2 hours 15 minutes for the 10K
  • 1 hour 30 minutes for the 5K
  • 30 minutes for the 1K

You must complete the course within the established time limits for your safety.

Information Booths and Lost & Found

An Information Booth will be positioned at the finish to assist you with any race day questions and help you find your way. The Information Booth will also serve as the race day Lost & Found. Any valuables found at the start or finish should be turned in to the Information Booth.

Any valuable items NOT claimed by the end of the Finish Line Festival will be sent back to our office. To claim a lost item after the event, please contact us.


The medical team consists of medical professionals who are at your service. There are medical positions at the start, the finish and at regular intervals along the route. Medical personnel wear red to be easily identified. To facilitate the work of medical teams, it is critical that you fill out the medical history information on the back of your race bib.

Race Timing

Race timing is by Sportstats using chip on the bib technology which will automatically record participants’ times at the start, at certain splits along the courses and at the finish. Sportstats will be using disposable tags, glued onto your race bib, which allows you to walk away from the finish without the need to have your tag collected.

Please Note: All participants in the race must wear their race bib with the tag intact in order to have their times recorded. No bib = no time! Please make sure the race bib is pinned at torso height at the front and is visible throughout the race.

Secure Zone

When you finish your race, you will be directed in the secure zone, a fenced area reserved for race participants only. In this area, you will receive your medal, water, and other post-race refreshments.

After you lead the secure zone, turn left to enter the Finish Line Festival, enjoy the concert and celebrate your accomplishment.

Note: Once you leave the secure zone, you cannot go back in.

Family Reunion

After the race, reunite with family and friends in the Family Reunion area and relish in your post race accomplishment with refreshments and live music at the finish line stage.

With a large number of participants and thousands of excited spectators, it can be difficult to locate friends and family without a plan. It is highly recommended that BEFORE the race you designate a meet-up location for friends and family in the Family Reunion area. The Family Reunion area will have tall, clearly-marked signs by letter (A – Z). Choose a letter and tell your friends and family so you all know where to meet after the race.
