You may sign up as a participant. You do not have to compete if you do not wish to do so.

You will receive your race shirt and race number (bib) with timing chip.

What type of timing is being used?

Start2Finish Event Timing will be timing the event.

We will use our new, state of the art MyLaps Electronic Timing System. Your timing chip will be on the back of your racing number bib. Participants must wear their number on the FRONT of their outer most garment.
