The 5K and 10K races will have a "gun start" and chip timed finish.  This means that all participants will have the same start time, and the finish time will be recorded as each runner crosses the finish line by reading the chip on the back of your numbered bib.  The 5K race has a wide start line which enables all runners to get across the start line in a matter of seconds after the starting gun sounds.  Timing services will be provided by Go! Sports Timing and Events.  

The Fun Run will have a clock at the finish line, but individual times are not recorded for this event.
