Race Tip of The Week:  Please check in with one of the race timers if you are unable to finish your race (DNF).  Our timing system tracks ALL racers out on the course, if you do not tell us that you are no longer racing we assume you are stuck out on the course and we will go looking for you.  Please help us out and check in with your friendly timers if you DNF.  Thank you

Adult Race Course: Similar to last week’s course, but we will be traveling it in the opposite direction!  All adult racers are strongly encouraged to look at the race map attached to this post before tomorrow’s race.  We will start the races in the same direction we’ve always started, which on the map is indicated by a light-blue line.  We will then get on the adult course right behind the backstop of the baseball field, and continue on the course in a counter-clockwise direction.  That means, all racers will be passing through the start-finish area within a few minutes after their respective race has started.  Because of this, we will have the start-finish area cleared for each race start.  So, the three lap racers will start, and once they all pass through the start finish area the first time, the two lap racers will line up and start, etc…
