ATTENTION SERIES PARTICIPANTS:
Due to the extreme heat, we are offering a 3:30 start for this race. We HIGHLY recommend any half/full marathoners and 50Kers who are able take this start time. We will still have 4:30 and 5:30 start times, as well. Note: You MUST have a flashlight/headlamp/light source to start at 3:30 or 4:30, and if you arrive late to the 3:30 or 4:30 start, you’ll have to wait for the next start time. You do NOT need to let anyone know ahead of time if you decide to participate in one of the early starts; just show up with your light at the appointed time. Be safe, everyone!
