Chip Timing:

  • We’ll have chip timing—the chip will attach to your shoe with a tie. We will hand the chip out before the race. Don’t worry; we’ll have volunteers there to show you how it’s done!
  • Note, right after you finish the race, a volunteer will cut the tie and remove the chip from your shoe. The chip is a rental and belongs to a Racing company. Please do not keep the chip.

Race Map (Attached):

  • Registration/drinks/snacks/pictures will be at the Gazebo. About 10 minutes before the race, we’ll walk out to the beach, near the Red dot 1 on the map. The start will be set up there.
  • Parking: Park by the Gazebo (Map attached)
  • Course: This is a simple 1.55 mile run South on the beach, and then a turn around point. Water will be provided at the turn around point.

The fun doesn’t stop here! Sign up now for the Great Father’s Day Race on June 14 at Siesta Key Beach.
