Corrals and Pace Teams

008

Corral Assignments

The start corrals are used to provide a quick start for faster athletes, as well as a positive race experience with sufficient room to run/walk along the race course for slower athletes. Runners will start the race in waves from their corrals with 90 seconds between each wave. 

Start corrals are assigned based on the estimated finish time entered at registration. Your personal start corral is printed on your race bib, and your timing chip will be attached to your bib. Your race time starts when you cross the start line.  

Corral                 Approximate Finish Time
Corral A               1:44 and below
Corral B               1:45 to 1:54
Corral C               1:55 to 2:09
Corral D               2:10 to 2:24
Corral E               2:25 to 2:44
Corral F               2:45 and over

 

Pace Teams

We have partnered with The Running Store to provide pace groups for the race. Experienced pacers will help you reach the finish line at your goal time. Pace groups are FREE and open to all participants.

The following pace groups will be offered:

1:30, 1:45, 2:00, 2:15, 2:30, 2:45 and 3:00 hours

Group captains will have signs in the corrals with their pace goal listed. You do not need to sign up in advance to be part of a pace group. Just line up with your pacer and introduce yourself to him/her – they love to know who they are running with (and who to yell at – no, we’re just kidding about that one!)

See the table below to see the pace that will be maintained within each group in order to complete the race within the goal pace.
