If you are still on the course after 2 hours, keep in mind that the half marathoners may be coming in from behind you, and you may be asked to continue the run on the sidewalk adjacent to our course. SAG wagons will patrol the route providing support to these participants.

We also suggest that walkers and slower participants consider using a fanny pack that accommodates a water bottle and snacks.

The last mile of the course is a huge celebration filled with crowds of well-wishers and more energy than you thought possible! After crossing the finish line, participants receive their medal and can head into the refreshments area where Water, Gatorade products, Kodiak Cakes pancakes, Creamies ice cream, Dole fruit cups, and other food for replenishment will be waiting.

Participants, as well as their families and friends, are invited to join the post-race festivities where live bands perform on the entertainment stage. Fun, interactive exhibits for adults and children as well as great food will all be part of the festivities to help celebrate and cheer on the athletes.
