So what does the Rubber Duck Mean?
All race participants will be provided a rubber duck as part of their race packet. The challenge is to keep up the duck with you at all times during the dash. We joke that your rubber duck is racing – you are just getting it to the finish line! Your duck can only complete the course on your person. Take care of your duck, love it, care for it, and help it get to the finish line! It must be safely in your possession at all times! Make your duck proud!
Aid / Water Stations
During the race, there will be water stations.
You can chose your wave during the registration process. The earlier you sign up, the better your chances of the wave you want. Projected wave start times every 10 minutes starting at 8:00am until 10:45am.
Please note that beginning in 2021, the waves will be more closely monitored by the designated colored wristbands issued for each wave. This is to ensure that we have a balanced number of race participants in each wave, so everyone can enjoy the race!
