Start Zones

Start zones will be in place at the start line of each race to ensure a smooth start for all participants. Entrants are asked to assemble in the appropriate zone as indicated by the letter printed on their race number. If you wish to run with friends or family who are starting in a different start zone, you may start in a slower zone than that printed on your race number. Please be aware that anyone found deliberately running out of their designated start zone may be disqualified without a race result.

All start zone selections and updates are done when completing your race entry and must be made prior to entries closing. If you need to update your start zone please do so via the Update your Entry Portal.
