Chip Timing: All distances chip timed by MyLaps Bibtags system. The chips are attached to the back of your bib and are disposable so we do not need them back. Please wear your bibs on the front of your body and do not cover with heavy coats.

Parking: There is parking available in the park. Use the beach area lots first. Parking along the road is ok, but do not drive on the grass.
