*Start Time Exceptions:

#1 - IF you are running on the White or Yellow course, then most of you have an OPEN start time.  Report to the Start anytime between 9 AM-Noon on Saturday, and 9 AM-Noon on Sunday.  Your start will be assigned then. 

The same applies if you are running the Recreational courses (White and Yellow on Saturday, and White, Yellow and Orange on Sunday).

2 - IF you are a volunteer, and no start time is shown in EventReg, please go to the Start to be assigned a start time when you are ready to start your race.  Report to the start at a time that works with your volunteer schedule.  Allow up to 15 minutes to check in at the start and be assigned a time.  Starts are open from 9 AM-Noon both days, and courses close at 3 PM. 

For everyone else:  If the time you were assigned doesn’t work, please email the registrar and we will attempt to accommodate change requests.
