12:30 pm - The 9.5 mile runners will take off from the starting line and the 3.6 mile runners can begin walking across the bridge to their starting point. 9.5 mile runners will START at the official starting line.
1:00 pm - the 3.6 mile runners will take off from their starting line. They will begin around the 9.5 mile mark of the race.
2:30-4:30 pm - Post Race Party @ Faith Community Church
