**In order to minimize the number of people at packet pick-up on race morning we highly encourage participants to pick up your packets in advance** 


Packet Pick Up and Race Day Registration opens at 7:00 a.m. at Running Vines Winery, 119 S Calumet Road, Chesterton, IN 46304.  

Participants must registered before December 4th to guarantee shirt sizes and availability.

Because of the current COVID 19 pandemic will be limiting this event to 400 participants.  We will be utilizing a rolling start.  This will allow runners to start individually or in small groups of associated participants (family member or participants that live together) during designated times.  When registering, participants will be asked to select a 10-minute starting time window between 8:30AM - 9:00AM.  Participants are encouraged to pick up their race packets in advance and to not arrive at the race site more than 15 minutes prior to their starting time window.  Participants may begin their race anytime during the selected time window.  There is a limit of 100 starting positions available for each starting time window and they are available on a first come, first serve basis.  In order to maintain safe distancing and traffic control on the race course participants must start during their selected starting time slot.  If a particular starting time is not available it means it has reached the maximum number of participants for that time slot.  Please do not ask us to make any exceptions, because we will not.  The race course will remain open until 10:00AM.

Each participant’s start time will be recorded as they cross the starting line.  As participants finish, they will receive a text message and/or email with their finishing time.  A list of overall finishing times for all competitors will be continually updated at www.thtiming.com while the race is in progress.   Shortly after 10AM the final race results along with the Overall, Masters, and Age Group awards will be posted.  Awards will be available to be picked up on site from 10AM-10:30AM and then at the Extra Mile Fitness Co., 1330 E. Lincolnway, Valparaiso, IN at noon on race day and during regular business hours for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks all unclaimed merchandise will be donated or recycled.
