This event will be timed using bibtag timing chips. The timing chip will be on the back of the run number. Please make sure your number is clearly visible on the front of your body. This will not need to be turned back in after the race – it is disposable. It will be a chip time start. That means your time will not start until you reach the start timing mat. Make sure your number is clearly visible on the front of your body. Gun Time is the time the gun/horn started the event. Chip Time is the time your chip crossed the start timing mat. The awards for this event are based on Chip Time.

Awards will be presented to the Top Male and Female Overall Finisher and the Top M/F Finisher in the following age groups:



Parking will be on campus. Follow the driveway down.  Signs and attendants will help direct to parking spaces. Overflow parking will be at Center Grove Youth Center down the street and a shuttle bus will be available. Signs and attendants will direct there as well.
