Where should I plan to meet up with my runner after the race?
Before your runner starts the race, make sure you know your runner's race number, anticipated finish time, what they are wearing and have a plan as to where to meet after the race. Check out the Family Reunion Area map included in the program to choose a meeting location. The Family Reunion Area will have tents arranged alphabetically with large signs for easy identification and other landmarks.
