Finish Line/Awards ceremony:
There are separate finish areas for runners and walkers. The 5k walk is not timed.
UNREGISTERED RUNNERS MUST NOT GO THROUGH THE FINISH CHUTE. RUNNERS WHO HAVE PREVIOUS FINISHED SHOULD NOT GO THROUGH THE CHUTE AGAIN WITH FRIENDS WHO FINISH LATER. These actions create errors in the scoring system and cause delay in the award ceremony. The Award Ceremony will start when all 5k runners have finished and results have been verified. 10k results will be announced shortly after.
There will be water, fruit and pastries at the finish line for all participants.
