Wave Start Details for the Half Marathon
In an effort to ease congestion along the course the race features wave starts. Simply put, a wave start consists of staggered starts of groups instead of one giant start for all participants.

Runners are placed in “waves” consisting of other runners of a similar pace. Each wave has its own start with a short “time cushion” between each wave. We hope the wave start creates a safer, more enjoyable experience for all participants.  Wave starts will be assigned and announced no later than March 1, 2017.
