Traditionally, early morning temps range from 40-55 degrees in June. Mid morning and afternoon temps can reach into the 80s or even higher. Please plan for any and all weather conditions.
Please see "THE COURSES" page on this site for detailed information on race routes for all race distance, including maps.
All participants will be equipped with a timing chip on their race bib. Please wear your bib facing forward for accurate timing with our timing sensors. You must wear your chip at all times on the course. Removal of your bib/chip and/or transferring a bib to another individual is not allowed and is grounds for disqualification.
Parking is available at Morgan High School, just a short walk from Riverside Park. Please do NOT park in the business area across from the park entrance, or on the streets in front of the park, as this is part of the run course.
Your packet pickup bag is also your Clothing drop bag. However, YOU MAY USE YOUR OWN BAG, BACKPACK, ETC. There will be a designated drop area at the start line. We will take all the bags that are in the drop area to the finish-area. We cannot guarantee the safety/security of your gear bags. The smart thing to do is leave items you don't need in your car, as parking is close to the start/finish area.
