This is required for the safety of all participants. If you are spotted weaving among the runners – you will be pulled from the race and shown as a DQ. This is per our insurance requirements and for the Safety of all participants.
AIRPORT CHALLENGE – Sign Up for the Airport Challenge if you want to Run BOTH the 1 Mile Race and the Half Marathon. Please Note – there is no special Medal or Shirt for the Airport Challenge. It is simply a way you can run both races – which many runners have asked for. Airport Challenge Results are scored by combining your finish position of the 1 Mile Race and the Half Marathon race. Airport Challengers will receive 1 Shirt. There is a special trophy for the Top 3 M & F Finishers of the Airport Challenge.
Those doing the Airport Challenge will run the 1 Mile at 7:45 then jump in line for the Half Marathon – which starts at 8:30 – Don’t get Chilled in between! Plan and Dress Accordingly……
A FREE kids’ Fun Run will start at 8:00 am (NEW TIME THIS YEAR) in front of the field house. (Once Again – A FREE “Top Gun” Kids Fun Run Cotton T Shirts to the first 100 registered kids).
Dogs – Sorry NO – Leave Fido at Home Please. This is an active airport, a loose dog on the runway would be a major safety concern.
Bandits (Runners with No Bibs) – will be asked to leave the event and barred from future races.
Shirts – Micro Smooth Technical Short Sleeve for 2017
Provided in Men & Women’s cuts
Race shirts may be available at Bib Pick Up on Friday 4/27 and on Race Day on 4/28 for $10.00 at packet pick up and on race day. This is subject to availability and done this way to reduce waste/over ordering. You may choose to add a Race Shirt with your entry up to 4/11/17. We know how important the race shirt is! Our short sleeve technical race shirts are locally printed through full dye sublimation rather than screen printing. Runners should register and purchase their shirt no later than April 11th. After that date, the shirts are ordered and we may not have the size that you want. This year we again go with a high quality short sleeve technical shirt.
When you pick up your Bib, Chip & Shirt – you will be issued the shirt size you indicated when you registered. If you desire another size, you may Come Back AFTER the race has started for a size exchange – IF they are available. Thank You for understanding.
