At the 11:15 am start to the Awards Ceremony, there still may be folks on the course as the cutoff is 3:00:00 or an average of 13:44 min/per mile Here are your splits to remain on pace to finish under the cut-off. 1m- 13:442m- 27:283m- 41:124m- 54:565m- 1:08:40 (check point)6m- 1:22:247m- 1:36:088m- 1:49:529m- 2:03:3610m- 2:17:2011m- 2:31:0412m- 2:44:4813m- 2:58:32 The 5m mark on the return is only 1 mile from the start and the finish so we ask that you be at the 5m split by 1:08:40 (13:44/per mile).  If you are over the 1:08:40 time at 5 miles we ask that you stop and walk back to the start/finish as you did not make the cut-off.   We only pay to keep agencies (Police/Fire/Medic/Rangers) for so long and for your safety you must remain under the cutoff pace of a 13:44 min per mile which we feel is very reasonable for a half-marathon runner.    Please know that this is not a "walk only" event.
