All participants will be organized into coloured corrals at the start line. Corral assignment will be based on the predicted finishing time submitted during registration. On race day, the corral entrances will be indicated by coloured flags that correspond to the coloured stripe on your race bib.
Corral and Start Times
In order to ensure that all participants have a safe and enjoyable race, we will be starting the races in waves. Please be in your start corral 10 minutes before the start of the race or you will have to start at the back of the corrals. The corral entrances will close so we can move participants through the start chute in preparation for their wave start time.
