The race will begin from The Els Center of Excellence campus in Jupiter, Florida, and will utilize COVID precautions, such as implementing staggered start times, or “waves” to avoid congestion and maintain distance at the start line and throughout the racecourse. Participants will select their wave start time based on their mile pace and skill level.
The first wave of three waves will begin at 7:30 a.m. from the campus, and meander through the adjacent North Jupiter Flatwoods Natural Area where participants will enjoy the beautiful scenery of native Florida habitats. During each wave, five runners will be directed to the corral and started every 20 seconds.
