10 Mile Wave Starts with Letter-coded Corrals

Please arrive at your corral area at least 15 minutes before your start time.

To ease congestion at the start, runners and walkers are assigned to a corral according to their anticipated finish time.   If you did not include an anticipated finish time when you registered you will be placed in the last start corral.

Corral entrances are at the back of each corral.
When the Start horn blasts, the first wave will be released. Approximately 90 seconds after one wave goes off, the next wave will begin, until all waves have been released.
By using this wave approach, runners and walkers alike will be able to compete at their own pace without dealing with congestion.
If you want to run/walk with a family member or friend that is in a different corral, the racer assigned to the faster corral is welcome to move back to a slower corral, but no one is allowed to move forward.
