Participants are recommended to be cautious and aware at all times during the race and be mindful that there are multiple ground surfaces throughout the race such as pavement, gravel, sand, and grass. Strollers and pets are not allowed on the 5K track. The race will start promptly at 8:00 a.m. at The Els Center of Excellence adjacent to the Pavilion. AccuChipUSA will provide net timing to each participant.
