Directions to start:

IMPORTANT: RACE START INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE READ To continually ensure your safety and that of your fellow participants, please read the race starting and corral information below. Corrals will be used at the starting line again this year. The first corral will be released at 10:15 a.m. Once a corral group has departed and the road is partially clear, the next corral will be released (approximately every 3 minutes). The ¼ mile Family Fun-Run will start from corral 5 at 11:00am. When you arrive and choose your corral, you will be provided a sticker that you must wear on your race bib to enter or re-enter the corral you have chosen. Corral stickers will be issued on a “1st come, 1st served” basis. Each corral will have 2,000 participants. When a corral is filled to capacity, it will be closed and you must seek another corral to the east of the closed corral. If you give away or lose your sticker, you will not be allowed into the corral, if it is full, and you will have to choose another corral. All corrals will be open and available beginning at 8:00 a.m. Anyone arriving after 9:50 a.m. will be directed to the rear of the corrals and then moved up as the corrals are released at intervals. Please note, we will not allow strollers and/or pets in the first corral. If you are a competitive runner and would like to be in the first corral, you must arrive early to get your sticker. Please enter the corral from either the north side (Washington Park) or south side (South High School) of Louisiana Avenue.
