Race day registration is available from 7:00 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. for $35 adult, $25 youth ages 6-18. Everyone who registers on race morning will start in the final wave, regardless of projected finish time. Because of time restrictions due to the parade we cannot accept registrations after 7:45 a.m., so plan accordingly.
Waves of up to 25 runners will start every 5 minutes beginning at 8:00 a.m., with the last wave taking off at 8:35 a.m. The first wave will be reserved for runners anticipating times of 5:30 or less, and the second wave will be reserved for runners anticipating times of 6:00 or less.
The last waves will be reserved for race day registration s and runners with dogs and for families and strollers. If you have both a dog and a stroller you will be assigned to the family wave.
If your company or workout group would like to compete together in your own wave we can try to accommodate that. Contact Michelle@rightstartevents for details.
**Once you have been assigned to a wave you will not be able to change it**
Race packets can be picked up on race morning from 7:00 to 7:45 near the start line at 38th & Chase St.

Near the start line - the King Soopers lot at 38th & Sheridan or Chase Plaza at 38th & Chase St.
Near the finish line: Stevens Elementary or the lots at 7200-7300 W. 38th.
DO NOT PARK ON AMES, BENTON OR CHASE ST BETWEEN 38TH & 35TH, AS THAT IS WHERE THE PARADE IS STAGED.
