Packet pickup/registration is from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. at Blue Ocean, so we suggest arriving no later than 7:30 a.m. to ensure you have time to park, pick up your bib, and get to the starting line before 9 a.m.
No to all three, unfortunately. Dogs and baby strollers tend to slow down your fellow runners, and wearing headphones greatly reduces your ability to hear race marshals and car traffic.
There won’t be an official bag check, but you can leave your bag inside Blue Ocean until noon. Anything left unclaimed after the race will be donated to a local shelter. LOCO Sports is not liable for any losses or theft that may occur.
Your safety and the safety of our wonderful volunteers and police are always top priority. Should the police indicate that conditions are not safe on the roads due to weather or other conditions, we’ll cancel or postpone the race.
The course will not be closed to car traffic but there will be runner lanes with cones, signs, and race marshals directing traffic.
There will be one water stop at the halfway point.
Prizes are awarded to the top male and female finishers overall, and to the top men and women in the following categories: 19 & Under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+. Awards must be picked up at the race. They will not be mailed.
Shirts are available in unisex sizes (S-XXL) sizes. You select a size during online registration but we allow you to choose a different size at packet pick-up because we know that sometimes shirts fit a little differently than you expected. However, because people can change their minds at the last minute, we don’t actually know how many of each size to order. We do our best to estimate (and we even order extras), but sometimes we run out of a particular size. So, if it’s really important that you get a specific size, be sure to arrive at packet pick-up as early as possible.
The entire course is spectator-friendly but the best spot would be near the Start-Finish. Spectators are advised to pick their spots early! Please do not attempt to drive on the course during the race!
We’re sorry, but there are no refunds, transfers or deferrals.
