Half marathon runners need to maintain a pace of 30:00 per mile to finish ahead of course closure.
Spectators are welcomed and encouraged along the vast majority of the route. Please be considerate of public and private property and never interfere with the progress of any race participant.

The course is composed entirely of paved asphalt roads.

Life happens. You shouldn't have to worry about what to do if you end up not being able to participate in the race, and you shouldn't have to pay for race insurance you might not use. Our generous policies allow you to transfer your bib to another person, defer your entry to next year, or withdraw from the race altogether and receive a refund. Runners can exercise these options at any time within the given timeframes for any reason whatsoever. Visit the Transfer, Withdrawal & Deferral page for more details.
We've added a new premium service for those who cannot attend the Expo & Packet Pick-Up. You may purchase this amentity upon checkout, and everything from your bib to your bag will be ready for you race morning. In addition, we will allow another individual to pick it up for you at the expo as long as they have a photocopy of your driver's license or another photo ID and a signed note from you authorizing them to do so.
Runners will be allowed to use earbuds on the course. However, for your safety we highly recommend that you keep the volume of your music low enough to still be aware of your surroundings, as police officers, volunteers, or emergency vehicles may need to get your attention at some point along the course.
Because of both logistical and liability issues, we are not currently allowing strollers on the buses or in the event for the marathon, half marathon, or the 702. We're sorry that we are not able to accommodate you at this point, but we will keep these requests in mind for future years.
