FINISH LINE SYSTEM:

S

There will be one finish line on Clinton Street, west of the start line.

If you have entered both the 10K and the 5K you will wear your 10K number and timing tag for the 10K race and your 5K number and timing tag for the 5K race. Two entry forms and fees are required to run both races. In order to provide accurate timing, please wear only one number and timing tag at a time. Wearing both devices in either race will impair timing accuracy.
Runners MUST be wearing their official race number on the front to be eligible for Prize Money or Awards. Details of the finish line system will be covered in the race instructions in the Race Packet.

FINISH TIMES & RESULTS:

A computerized finish line system using the timing tag reader will provide a means for fast and accurate timing of all finishers. This year there is a timing mat at the start line for the 10K and 5K races, but all awards will be based on “gun” times.

CORPORATE CUP TEAMS:

All team members must be full time employees of the company represented. A corporation may enter more than one team. To enter, a team’s captain must submit the team roster accompanied by separate individual entry forms completed by each team member, along with individual fees and a $25 Corporate Cup entry fee per team by May 16, 2013. For an official Corporate Cup Team entry form, contact Lawrence Hillis at: 256-536-9556 OR Download Corporate Cup Entry Form here.
