4. Race Day Details

When you register on Saturday morning or check in if you have pre-registered, you will be assigned a Heat # depending on the number of participants in each age group. If there are large number of participants there will be multiple heats per age group.

about 15 minutes prior to the race you will be called the race start area. The plan is to have a warm up prior to each race. More details to follow.

The event will only be timed for older teens and adults. The event is to promote a healthy lifestyle and expose children to a fun event which encourages participation and socialization around events. Hopefully we can create lifetime affinities to social gatherings for fitness and a yearning to compete whether it is within or against others.
