This is to cut down on the number of people in the start/finish area at one time. Each participant will have a 10-minute window to start their race. Once finishing, participants are encouraged not to hang around the start/finish area. Participants will be able to grab some pre-packaged refreshments after crossing the finish line. Awards will be available at the YMCA for pick up beginning January 4th.
