Course Marshals will be located at various intersections on the course that need additional support to keep runners pointed in the right direction and to make vehicles aware of runners. Runners do not stop at stop signs so it is important that the Course Marshals use their safety flags to warn drivers to wait until the runners have passed before proceeding. If you need a bathroom break, you should call Rebecca or Missy and they will send someone to fill your spot while you are gone. All Course Marshals are located less than 3/4 mile from the Start/Finish area.
Runners will approach you going clockwise around the lake. You should see the first runners around 8:00am-10:00am. This is going to be extremely busy and crowded so be ready for a rush of 1800 runners. You will then see the relay teams between 8:00am-10:30am. You will receive another rush of 60 runners. After 10:30am, you will get sporadic full marathon runners on their second lap. This will continue until 12:45pm.
BRING BUG SPRAY AND SPF IF YOU THINK YOU MAY NEED IT.
