RACE DAY FAQ
Where does the race start?
The race will start and finish at Abacoa Town Center at 1267 Main Street, Jupiter, FL.
Where do I park?
This one is easy. Parking is available on Main Street and there is a parking garage with free parking on University Blvd across from FAU.
Where are the restrooms located?
Restrooms are available at the Abacoa Amphitheater.
What time does the race start?
The 5k race starts at 7:30 a.m. The Warrior Walk will begin immediately following all the 5k participants leaving the start area – by 7:45 a.m.
What time should I arrive at the race site?
You can arrive as early as 6:30. We suggest you arrive by 6:45 a.m. to allow for parking, warm up, fun, etc.
Can a family member or my friend wait for me at the race site while I run?
Yes, spectators are allowed.
What can I expect at the finish line?
You will be handed your gold finisher beads and water by volunteers wearing masks. Runners are asked not to congregate in the finish line area but asked to move through quickly.
Will you offer any post-race snacks?
Yes. Volunteers will offer you a selection of prepackaged snacks and fruit.
How is the race timed with a rolling start?
Runners will be scored by net chip time – including the overall winners – which is the elapsed time between when a runner crosses the timing mats at the start and finish lines. The overall winners are scored by gun time which is the order they cross the finish line. This means that a runner who crosses the finish line after you may still have run a faster race than you.
Where will I find the race results?
Results will be streamed live to the internet where runners can check their times. There will be no printed race results onsite to avoid congestion of runners at result boards. Link to online results will be posted.
I won an award. Will there be an awards ceremony?
Congratulations! Good for you! We will have an awards ceremony for overall male and female first, second, and third at 8 a.m. at the stage. Age group winners will receive their award at the appropriate table.
What about medals and T-shirts?
Medals and T-shirts are guaranteed for the first 500 runners registered before Oct 15th. That will be determined by the date that a participant registered, not when they finish. These will be given out at packet pick-up. Register now so you don’t miss out!
