  • Once a runner arrives at the North Red Lot and enters through the gate, a volunteer will take the runner’s temperature and place a sticker on the runners’ bib to signify that a runner is clear to participate.
  • Runners will then proceed to an open orange cone.
  • Runners will walk from cone to cone until arriving at the start line.  Cones will be placed 6 feet apart for the entire time a runner is waiting.  Once at the start line runners will start 4 runners across the start line every 4 seconds. All runners MUST be socially distancing by standing at a cone and wearing a mask during this time or be subject to disqualification.
  • The start line will be open from 6:30 am until 9 am. The race will not have a wave or gun start.
