RACE DAY GROUP PHOTO
We meet together to take a picture before the race at 6:30am in front of the Red sculpture on the corner of Main and Pershing.

RACE DAY PARKING
There are thousands of people down there for the event, so make sure you are aware of what road closures will be before the morning of the race to ensure you know where you will park.

START OF THE RACE
The races will start and finish at Washington Square Park (north of Crown Center), near the corner of 22nd Street and Grand Boulevard

There will be pacers for the half and full marathons. You will need to line up around the same area as the pacer of the time you are planning on running.

    This will ensure that you don’t start too far in the front and get
    run over or that you start too far in the back and start at a
    slower pace than you need to

5K / 10K: Line up according to your mile pace

Faster paced runners should line up towards the middle/front

PLEASE GO OVER ALL THE INFORMATION THAT THE RACE PROVIDES TO YOU WHEN YOU REGISTER. 
You do not want to be late to the race. 
Give yourself enough time and be prepared for the day of the race.


Plan accordingly for traffic and parking. 
It is advised to carpool and plan your parking spot before the race.

 

Make sure you purchase a
Run to Stop it shirt in order
to represent the cause we
are supporting!
