This wave is for pros and elite age groupers. If you’re fast this is your chance to go head-to-head with others regardless of age.
Age groups are subdivided by gender and five-year age increments (e.g. 20-24, 24-29, 30-34, etc.). It is important to note that Age Groups are assigned based on athlete age as of December 31 of race year (thus no changes during the calendar year).
Clydesdale / Athena
You can also select to participate in the Athena/Clydesdale, separated according to body weight instead of age group. These athletes are subdivided by gender, each of whom must meet these minimum weight requirements:
- Athena: 165 lbs
- Clydesdale: 220 lbs
Participants have the option to enter varying distances as a relay team, consisting of 2–3 individuals. Teams may elect which person will complete each specific discipline. Team members share a single timing chip, which is passed from one team member to another in transition. Each relay team member will receive a finisher medal. You and your team mates can have fun all running down the finish line chute together to get your medals, or if you can’t go together, just show the “R” on your leg to a volunteer handing out awards to get your medal. The top three teams will receive a team award.
