Those registering before April 2 will be guaranteed a race shirt in their choice of size.  Those registering after April 2 may get a shirt if quantities allow.

GETTING THERE
The race will begin near the pavilion area in the private community of Chesapeake Isle.  There will be signs posted, but the easiest way to get to the start is to simply turn left onto Darrel Road off of Route 272.  If you stay straight on Darrel Rd, it will take you right to the parking / starting line area.

Here is a link to Google Maps: 
XtpTmPARKING
This is an important one, folks.  Parking will be very limited.  While most of the participants of this event live in the community, we do have a good number of folks that are coming in from outside the area.  If you live in the community, PLEASE consider walking to the start, carpooling, and allowing your out-of-town guests to park at your home.  Primary parking for those who need it will be at the pavilion parking lot.  Overflow parking will be at the harbor area.  There will be parking marshals on site to assist everyone.  Please follow their instructions, and please do not park along the pavilion road for the safety of all participants.  The overflow parking area is about a brisk 10 minute walk to the start, so please allow yourself plenty of time.

COURSE

This USATF certified 5k (3.1 mile) road course has 3 turn- around points in order to keep it within the community.  There will be 12 course marshals along the race.  One will be stationed at every turn throughout the course.  Please follow their directions as they are there to guide you in the right direction and to keep you safe.
