Timing and Results:
Official results and age group awards will be based on your Chip Time. All runners must attach the Chip to a shoe as instructed or they will not be timed and ineligible for any award. Results will be posted on www.pretzelcitysports.com.
All runners will receive a Race Number (Bib) and a Timing Chip. Examine the labels for accuracy. If you find any discrepancies, please contact a Race Official immediately. Prior to the race start, attach the Bib to the FRONT of your shirt and secure the Timing Chip as instructed. Runners crossing the start line or entering the finish area without a Timing Chip will be disqualified from receiving any award.
Our course of gentle rolling hills meanders through the streets of our historic community. Volunteers will be stationed at intersections to help keep everyone safe. Local police and fire police will help at major intersections. Look for arrows on the road to help navigate the course.
The starting line is near the Nazareth Post Office (about 1/2 block from the YMCA). The finish line is in front of the YMCA. The running and walking courses start and end in the same area but are not the same course. Strollers and pets are allowed in the walk only.
After The Race:
Refreshments will be in the YMCA parking lot and awards will be done on the front steps as soon as possible after all runners have finished. In the case of inclement weather, refreshments will be in the YMCA lobby an awards in the gym.
Pumpkin Pies will be given to the top three male/female runner in five year age groups beginning with 5-9 through 65 & over. Awards will also be given to the Overall Male/Female and the Oldest/Youngest runners. (no duplication of awards)
Parking is available on the streets surrounding the course.
