Race Photos and Results

  • Where can I find the photos taken during the race?

    GamefaceMedia will be out on the course to capture photos of every runner. Photos will be available for free after the race. We will send an email confirmation when the photos are ready. You can also access past race results and photos here.

  • How are race times tracked?

    The race is timed using ChronoTrack tag technology. Your tag must be picked up at our packet pickup location and worn on the shoe during the race. Your results cannot be posted unless the tag is worn on your shoe in the proper manner.

    Unofficial results will be posted in the Finish Line Festival Area and on the Results page on this website thirty minutes after the first runner crosses the finish line. Friends and family can check the website for up-to-the-minute race results.

    The timing tag must be worn on the shoe during the entire race. Not wearing the tag will result in missing split times, which may result in disqualification.

    Any change requests regarding the unofficial results must be submitted within three days after the race. Failure to contact us within three days may result in your times not being listed in our web results.
