Race Day in a Nutshell

We ask that participants arrive at Mayor Lutheran High School slightly before their staggered packet pickup time shown in the table below. If you are walking/running with a group, please select the earliest time shown for people in your group. If you are not on the list act like your time is 7am for marathon or 50k, 8am for half marathon, and 9am for 10k.

Park in the west parking lot, away from the start/finish line (which is at the southwest corner of the building).

Face Coverings are required inside Mayor Lutheran High School.

Enter Mayor Lutheran High School by the north door (next to the flagpole) at your packet pickup time. Pickup your bib number and t-shirt. Coffee and water are available here, as are real bathrooms.

Pin the custom bib number (with timing chip on the back) onto the front of your shirt/jacket. Be careful not to damage the timing chip on the back of this number. , Pin the plain bib number onto the back of your shirt/jacket. If you have a rain jacket or other good jacket do not pierce it with pins, rather put the bib numbers underneath the jackets, and be prepared to “flash” your numbers at the finish line.

After you (and your group) have put on your bib numbers, proceed to the start line, which is at the southwest corner of the building. We start people (or small groups) every 15 seconds, so there is little or no waiting.

Follow the signs to go south on village streets/paths to get to the trail. Cross Ash street and head west to the turnaround sign for your distance, then return to the start.

Marathoners have to do it all twice.

50k people do the marathon, then head out a third time to do the extra “5” miles.

Remember to look good for the photographer as you finish — and flash your number so we can tell who is in the picture.

Finisher medals and age-group medals are available just past the finish line.

Post-race food and drink are available inside Mayor Lutheran High School. Remember you need a face covering inside the school.

Hope you have a good race.

Staggered Packet Pickup Time

======== 4/20/2020 ===============

“I was just wondering if you have ever cancelled or rescheduled due to weather.”

No, so far we have never cancelled or delayed the event for weather conditions. Due to the various permits for the event and other logistics we would not postpone to another day.

======== 3/19/2020 ===============

COVID-19 Update – At this time we are planning to hold the event. This may change due to the risks from the COVID-19 epidemic. We will follow the evolving recommendations from the health authorities.

========= 5/19/2020 ==============

We are making modifications in the courses and the event to provide safer distancing between walkers. All drinks and snacks will be prepackaged in sealed containers. The race morning breakfast and Friday dinner will not be served. Prepackaged food and drink and self serve coffee will be available at the High School.

Packet Pickup on Friday is cancelled. Packets will be distributed at the race starting point. Walkers should pickup their packets and return to their cars.

There is no mass start. Walkers will start at about 10- 15 second intervals to maintain separation. Starting order will be set by your estimated finish time so that faster walkers start first.

The starting times will be:

7 am Marathon & 50 k – Taking the first leg going east on the trail

7:30 am Half Marathon – Proceeding west on the trail

8 am 10 k – Proceeding east on the trail

=========7/10/2020 ==================

A running category for non-elite runners has been added due to the cancellation of many of the running events. We hope that runners in the over 4.5 hour marathon pace will join us and learn more about the many walking styles in a walking event.

=========7/12/2020 ================

Amanda asked ” In the event this gets cancelled due to COVID, would we get our money refunded?”

Yes, there is an option on the registration site to cancel and receive a refund of 95% back to your credit card. Use the Registration History on your profile to edit your registration. Cancelling is one of the options.
