  1. Awards are based on chip timing. NOT gun time
  2. Participants are only eligible for awards if they are racing in their suggested race distance based on their age. The only exception is if a participant is younger than the suggested age for that given race distance.
  3. Awards are based on the participant’s age as of August 26, 2018
  4. Participants must follow instructions as given from all event officials, including race staff, volunteers, medical personnel, security officers and city officials throughout the duration of the event.

Therefore, no person shall be allowed to accompany a participant if he/she is not registered in the event, nor shall any participant be allowed, without the permission of the event management, to receive assistance or refreshment from anyone during the progress of the event.
