Bag Check: We offer Bag Check at the Registration Tent. If you drop off a bag, we ask that you pick up within 15 Minutes of completing the run. 

Awards: We will have an awards presentation at about 10am at the location of Greg Jones. Awards are given out to the top 3 overall runners (men and women) and top 3 in age categories (men and women). Overall awards are based on Gun Time. Age group awards are based on Chip Start time.

Timing and Results: This event is chip timed with a chip start and finish. Each bib will have your information programmed on 2 chips located on the back of the bib. Your “chip time” will be calculated from the moment you cross the start line. However, please note that for awards, we use the “gun time” results for overall winners. So, if you are competing for an “overall award”, we suggest you start near the front of the pack. The timing company suggests that bibs are worn on the front of outer layer of clothing for best “read results.”

Results will be available within minutes on-line at our website www.GoodDayforaRun.com. There will be a Result Kiosk on site.
