Start & Finish Line Procedures

The start line is located on Hubbard street near the Glastonbury High School. The finish line is located at the passageway in the parking lot behind the high school gymnasium.

Please line up at the start according to how you think you will finish. Signs located on the street will mark the place you should start based on your expected finish time. Walkers and stroller should be near the back of the pack. Please do not create an unnecessary danger by starting closer to the start line than you should.

All runners will need to pick up their race # with attached timing chip on race day. We will be using the single use MYLAPS Bib Tag this year. CLICK HERE for instructions on using the MYLAPS Bib Tag. Please ensure the following in order to receive an accurate time:

  • Race bib is clearly visible on the front of the torso
  • Race bib is unaltered and unmodified (Do not fold or wrinkle)
  • Race bib is pinned in all four corners
  • Race bib is not covered (jackets, runner belts, water bottles, etc.)
  • Please arrive at the Glastonbury High School gym between 9:30-11:30 a.m. and report to the "Chip Pick Up Table" to receive your race # with attached timing chip.

    Please do not remove your number until you have gone completely through the chute. Numbers are not interchangeable among runners. After you have crossed the finish line, continue moving to the edge of the roped off area. Each runner may cross the finish line only once with the chip. A runner who finishes and then goes back to the course to run with another runner (like a father who finishes and then goes back to run the last 1/2 mile with his son) should not cross the finish line again. If the runner crosses the finish line again, his/her first time will be disqualified and he/she will receive the latter time as their official time.
