SAFETY FIRST: At the start line there are some serious runners. If you plan to walk or run slower than a 9-minute mile, please stay behind them or to the side to allow the faster runners a clear path on the highway. They will be gone in less than 20 seconds! We will have course marshals at the start line. Please follow their instructions.
STAY ON COURSE. Please stay on the highway or at the lookouts to take photos. DO NOT climb down to Eternity Beach or on the rocks anywhere along the course!

If there are enough people, it will make two trips. The buses will accommodate strollers.
