Or, experience the course with this interactive map:
The start line is located on Shelter Island Drive on Shelter Island.
Pre-race announcements and warm-up will begin at 6:30am in Shoreline Park.
Runners will self-seed in the Start Line shoot based on their expected finish time.
The race will be a wave start per the timing below. The corral will start in waves to maximize the amount of space runners have at the start, on course, and at the finish line.
You must arrive by 6:15am. Runners who arrive after the last wave has departed (7:15am) will not be allowed to start the race. There will be no exceptions to this time limit.
There will be volunteers holding a rope between each wave. Volunteers will guide each wave forward to the start line, the rope holders will move out of the way, and you will be signaled to start.
The finish line is located in Waterfront Park.
To keep congestion for runners in the finish area under control, we encourage you to make arrangements in advance to meet friends and family inside the post-race party.
