The race will go unless the Police decide the weather is bad. Rain and snow will not cancel the race. If lighting is present, the race will be delayed and everyone will be asked to wait inside of Lake Park.
The race is chipped time. The chip is on the back of the bib. The bib can not be covered when you pass over the start or the finish line. Please wear the bib on the outside of your clothing for the race. Do not bend the chip, this can cause it to not register. For 2016, the race will start with air horn, there is no timing strip on the starting line so everyone’s start time is the same. This changed this year is order to eliminate the bottle neck from the past two years and allows everyone to use the whole street to start. If you are a competitive runner, make sure you line up in the front. The timing company is responsible for accuracy of the results.
The route will be closed for the duration of the race, however since there are homes along the route, there is the possibility of cars coming out of these homes, all runners need to be aware of their surrounding.
Music, food and drink will be at the finish line. Results will be posted as soon as they are available. Heaters will be available if the conditions are cold. The Lions club will be serving Hot Chocolate!
