Race Day Preparation

Remember to hydrate properly for our tropical climate, especially a few days before the race. This means some kind of electrolyte replacement drink, not just water.

All participants are responsible for knowing their race course.

Course Limits

Race cutoff is eight hours after the start. This allows enough time for any trained participant to complete the course, even if you plan to walk. After this time the course will be re-opened to traffic and aid stations will be closed after the last participant passes or at 1:30 pm. Some close as early as 11:00 am.
