Due to liability insurance requirements and for your safety and the safety of runners around you the following are not allowed during the race: strollers, baby joggers, skateboards, bicycles, animals, roller blades, unauthorized vehicles, unentered runners, etc. In addition the use of headphones is Strongly Discouraged. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
FINISH LINE SYSTEM:
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.
We have the enhanced the Cotton Row Corporate Team Competition and have added an Open Team Competition as well for this year’s Cotton Row 10K! The Corporate Cup is for employees of the same corporation and the winners of the men’s, women’s, and coed category will bring back a trophy back to their organization for permanent display and pride ($25/team entry fee in addition to individual entry fees). The open team competition is for any group of friends, classmates, church group, etc., who would like to run together as team to add even more fun to the race, and will also have men’s, women’s, and open categories with awards for the winners, and there is no additional charge for open teams. Each team is required to have between 3 and 5 members, and the top three times (at least one of each sex for the coed category) are scored. Please scan the appropriate section in the linked instructions (HERE) on how to register your team. And don’t worry – if you’ve already registered, you can still get on a team (see instructions)!
