Rules for a prediction run
Each runner/walker predicts how long it will take them to complete the 3.1 mile course. The finishers who come closest to the time predicted on the registration form wins. The use of watches or timing devices will be considered an unfair advantage and the participant will be disqualified. The computer time will be the official time. To be eligible you must enter a predicted time on your application.
To the first 5 males & females in each age group who finish closest to their actual predicted times. Age groups are: Male & Female ages 0-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, and 70+
