Results, Awards & Half Marathon Finisher’s Medal

The Half Marathon, and Thrive 5k/10k will be timed using disposable chip timing. Two label-thin timing chips will be adhered to the back of your race bib. There’s nothing to put on your shoe or remove – simply wear your bib on the front of your body. Make sure it is not obscured by clothing or race belts.

At the start line, line up according to pace. 6:00/mile runners and faster should be at the front, and so on, with walkers and baby strollers/joggers in the back. No rush on getting to the start line right after the gun goes off – remember your time does not start until you cross the start mats.

At the race finish line, Half Marathoners will be awarded their beautiful, Running of the Elk Half Marathon finisher’s medal.
