All participants are expected to be able to complete the 5K in 2 hours and the Half Marathon course in 4 hours, i.e. 18 minutes-per-mile.
The time count begins after the start of the last wave of runners. Runners who are unable to maintain an 18-minute pace, although encouraged to complete the race, will be asked to remain out of previously-closed traffic lanes and will be asked to move to the side and obey regular traffic laws. The Highway will be reopened to traffic on a “rolling basis” determined by that pace.
The Finish Line will stay open for runners and spectators until 12:00 PM. Aid stations, official finishing times, commemorative medallions, and post-race refreshments will only be available to runners who maintain a 4:00 pace or below.
