  • Participants with an estimated finish time of 5:30 – 7 hours only.
  • Pre-race briefing starts at 6:00 a.m. at the start line.


  • Only participants indicating an expected finish time of greater than 5:30 hours (when you register) will be allowed to start at 6:30 a.m. Walkers are welcome as long as completion time is less than 7 hours. Faster Marathon participants and Half Marathoners are not permitted to start at 6:30 a.m.
  • If you do not have the correct colour race number you will not be allowed to start early.

  • Up until 7:30 am participants must be on the sidewalk, obey local traffic laws and be self sufficient as volunteer support will be limited.
