START LINE:

The Start line is now located at Grand Park in front of City Hall. A Wave Start will be incorporated in the New Year’s Race Half Marathon & Resolution 5k/10k. Both the Half Marathon & Resolution 5k/10k participants will be assigned in the same corrals at the Start Line based on running pace. On the course, there will be “split signage” and course marshals to indicate where the two races will split on the course.
The Starting Line Corral system ensures a smooth race start for the multitude of participants at varying experience and fitness levels. Runners will be assigned a race number and corresponding corral based on the estimated finish time provided on the race entry form.

NOTE: Each race distance will have their own color coordinated bib. Runners will NOT be permitted to start late due to the safety of all runners starting on time and road closures. Please plan to arrive at least TWO hours prior to your start to allow for a pleasant race experience.

If you would like to change your corral after this date, you will need to make all necessary changes during packet pick up hours.
