Chip Timing

Runners need to complete the full lap within the event time limit to receive credit for the distance.

Aid Stations
Fully-stocked aid station every mile. You can expect fresh fruit, salty snacks, assorted candy, water, and Clif Shot Electrolyte sports drink. There will be hot soup and pizza in the evening.

No personal "camping" tents are allowed at Crissy Field.  Canopy tents, tables, chairs and coolers are acceptable.

Portable toilets are located adjacent to the course near the start/finish area.

In an effort to reduce waste and litter, Coastal events are cupless. We request that you bring your preferred means of containing fluids, including hot drinks, for during your run and at the aid station. Please make sure that it is not breakable and labeled. There will be a table to leave them. We will have some Hydrapak SpeedCup ($5) for sale at check-in.

Please note that there are no pre-filled cups of hydration at the aid stations.

Team Competition
Teams of 2-4 members will be issued a Race Belt to attach their team bib.. Each team member is required to complete at least one lap but they can complete as many, or as little, laps as they'd like. The team bib can only be transferred to another team member at the timing mat (S/F). 

Award medals are given to the top three teams. All teams will receive a custom coaster with their team name and distance completed.
