Q9: Is there a time limit for the LIVE / In-Person Race? Answer: Yes. Due to the overall safety of both participants and the race day staff including our volunteers, law enforcement and EMS team. The Half Marathon cut off time will be 3hrs 15min. Due to the layout of the course, participants that are in the Half Marathon that have not passed the final right turn to the finish by 1hr 40min will be diverted to finish as a Quarter Marathon finisher. If finishing time is of concern, please email the race and the Race Director will review options for you. Due to athlete safety, we are NOT able to offer an "early start" for those that might need extra time.
