Start groups

The start section is divided into six start groups as appears from the table below.

The race start is expected to continue for 30 minutes, from the time the race commences at 11:15 AM, until the last runners have crossed the starting line.

You will be assigned a start group according to the estimated finish time provided in your registration form. Your assigned start group is marked on your bib number. 

It is possible to change your expected finish time until Sunday, August 27, in your online entrant profile.

 

Pace teams

You can follow one of the 14 pace teams to cross the finish line in your desired finish time. Pace teams will be positioned in the correlating start groups and will be carrying colored balloons indicating their finish time (h:min).
