Frequently Asked Questions
Packet Pick-up

Saturday, May 19, 2018 from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Fleet Feet Kendall Yards

A friend may pick-up you packet for you. There will be a limited bib number pick-up on race morning for those that forgot packet pick-up, but no race packets will be distributed. Bib numbers will be distributed at the start line for those that missed packet pick-up. We will not delay the start in order for you to pick-up your packet.

Marathon Runners only: 5:00 AM – 6:00 AM

Half Marathon: 6:00 AM – 7:00 AM

NO Marathon walker buses will depart before the race.  Walkers will only have a shuttle after the race back to the start from the finish.

There is limited parking at the starting area of the full marathon.  There is ample parking at the parking lot in Mirabeau Park near the start of the Half marathon.  You are strongly encouraged to take the free bus transportation to the start lines.  

Shuttle buses will also run from the Spokane Convention Center Breezeway back to the half marathon and marathon starts as needed. The last shuttle bus will depart at 2:30 PM.

Gear Bag Checks

We have morning gear bag transport if you choose to use the service. Gear bags will be available at both packet pick-up and morning of the race at the start lines. Your bib number will be marked on your gear bag. All gear bags will be transported to the finish line area from the start lines immediately after the race starts. Please do not leave items of significant value in your gear bags. All gear bags must be claimed by 2:30 PM on race day.

Rules and Timing

Timing and results will be produced by Nomadz Racing (nomadzracing.com). Timing chips will be fixated on the back of your bib number and will read when you cross the finish line.

The rules below must be followed at all time or it may result in a disqualification.

  1. Running with strollers is not allowed due to the narrow course along the centennial trail and runner congestion.
    Running with a pet is not allowed for the safety of other runners and due to runner congestion.
    Headphones are strongly discouraged for your own safety and the safety of those around you. If you must run with headphones, we ask that you only put it in a single ear to be able to hear traffic, course marshals, and other runners around you.
Awards

There will be awards given for top 3 in each age group category and top 3 overall in the Full and Half Marathon.  The awards ceremony will take place near the finish line as soon as all age groups have been filled with the top 3 runners.
