Stagger Start:  We will implementing a stagger start by breaking up the start line into 3 groups.  Group 2 will start 1 minute after group 1 leaves the start line.  Group 3 will start 1 minute after group 2 leaves the start line.  There is a significant double back on Alderman Road just after 1 mile mark and just after mile 2.  We hope the stagger start will alleviate the congestion on Alderman Road and make your experience of the new race route pleasant.
