  • The Official Start Times are now available in the table below. Please note: All times are subject to change.
  • Runners had until July 31 to select their transportation to the start and bag-check/post-race poncho options. Runners who did not select transportation and wish to do so may select from limited options in-person at the expo. Runners who did not make a bag-check/post-race poncho selection will be assigned to the bag-check option.
