Half Marathon Wave Start

In a wave start, runners start in groups of approximately 1,000 in 2-3 minute intervals.

Please note: there may be approximately 30 minutes between the first wave and the last wave. You should arrive at the start line in time for your wave start interval. A wave start will allow you plenty of space along the course, at the aid stations and at the finish line, without affecting your chip time. All Half Marathon participants need to complete the course by 1:30 p.m.
