SHUTTLE BUSES

The marathon and half marathon are point to point courses and we will be offering shuttle bus tickets for $8 if you would like to take the shuttle bus. Shuttle buses will only be available before the race transporting runners from finish line at Riverfront Park area to their respective start lines. NO shuttle buses will be available following the race! Masking and COVID-19 guidance will follow CDC and local government regulations regarding mass transit at the time of the event.

AID STATIONS / NUTRITION:

Participants will cross aid stations roughly every 2-3 miles on the course. Aid Stations will be equipped with water, gatorade, GU gels and chews. Based on the the outcomes of the pandemic in 2022, will determine the style and availability of drinking products. Final decisions will be made closer to race day.

GEAR CHECK:

We will have an athlete only gear check corral in which athletes will drop their bag at a pre-labeled area based on their bib number. There will be adequate spacing between bags and runners. Volunteers will not handle any gear bags. Volunteers will staff the entry and exit of the gear check area to make sure bags match the bib number of each runner entering and exiting. Bib numbers will be required to enter and exit the gear check corral. For safety purposes volunteers may ask to look inside of gear bags. Runners must provide their own bag due to the Washington State plastic bag law. 

FINISH PHOTOS:

SMILE! We will have an automated camera set up at the finish line that is triggered by our timing box when you cross the finish line.  These photos will be available on the results page within 72 hours after the race. The more visible your bib number is, the easier it is for our automated software to tag your photo with your bib so you can find it easily post race. If your bib number was not visible, you can still search all the finish photos to find your photo.

TOILETS:

Portable toilets and hand washing stations will be available in the start / finish area and along the course. Please follow physical distancing protocol when using the toilets. Gel in and hand wash coming out of the restrooms.
