REGISTRATION/CHECK IN

Our starter will communicate final instructions and starting commands to runners ahead of each heat.

TRACK SAFETY AND ETIQUETTE
The registration/check-in tent, sponsor tents, and awards podium will be located on the far side of the track by the homestretch. ALWAYS look both ways before crossing the track, even if a race is not in session. Stay clear of the finish area and timing cameras as to not interfere with timing or results.

Runners – always pass on the right. If a runner is approaching from behind to pass you, stay to your left and allow them to pass to your right.

ELITE ATHLETES
We will have rabbits (AKA pacers) for the open men’s and women’s fast heats. The plan is for the men’s rabbit to go through the 800m in 2:00 and women’s rabbit to go through the 800m at 2:22.
