|MAP OF THE RACE|
This just shows the start, and the 4 aid stations.
The 16k runners will go to the last aid station at mile 4.96 ish and turn around.
The 8k Runners will go past Aid station 2 and look for the 2.48 mark(2.5) and turn around then....if you 8k runners go past that point then you will be running longer and you probably will not be happy. We will have signs, chalk and people standing there to tell you to turn around.
This 16k route is 16k even though the map says 15.78...it's been measured but not certified.
Thanks for signing up for our race, sometimes things change and you have to transfer your race entry or change the race, we understand. Please understand that this takes time to make these changes and we charge $20 to make that change or transfer.
It doesn't mean we don't love you.
