Wave Start FAQs
How is my wave assigned?
placed in waves by their estimated finish time and run/racewalk/walk status
submitted at the time of registration. Those participants who sent in seeding
proof verifying that they can finish within a certain time will be lined up
toward the front of the field.
When will I find out
what wave I have been placed in?
Each participant will receive an email in mid-April
containing their bib number, corral, wave and wave start time.
What are the start
times of each wave?
Wheelchair – 7:30 am
Wave 1 – 7:33 am
Wave 2 – 7:40 am

Can I switch to a different wave?

How long will the gap be between each wave?
Each wave will start in 10 minute increments. With an

minute, there will be a 7- to 8-minute gap between the clearing of the previous
wave and the start of the next wave.
