The course varies from paved, level road to slight hills
to packed wet sand with a river crossing in between. The
Little River crossing is done at low tide to minimize the
water depth but depending on the amount of recent rainfall,
the water depth can vary. Ropes across the river assist
runners as well as Coast Guard Rescue Swimmers stationed
at the river. (see COURSE
page for more information)
and Scoring: Timing for this race will be done using
the MYLAPS Chip on the Bib. Please note the
following to ensure you are using this Timing Chip properly:
must wear your bib. It must be worn on the front of your
shirt. NOTE! It is
preferable that you wear the bib so that the number is
visible from the front so that you can be identified by
NOT crumple or fold the bib as this will break
the transponder antenna.
NOT place the bib between your body and your
childs (i.e. this is what happens when you carry
your child when finishing the race). This action will
prevent the transponder from sending its signal.
NOT remove your shirt and carry it folded up
in your hand. This action may prevent the transponder
from sending its signal if the bib itself is folded or
inside your moist shirt.
Timing Chip is disposable so there is no need to return
it after the race. If you wish to RECYCLE
the TIMING CHIP please leave it affixed to the
bib and turn in the entire bib at the finish line.
