RACE DAY INFO
RACE DAY SCHEDULE
The 1K has a staggered start, so be sure to pick up your childs packet prior to the start time of their race.
8:00am-9:15 - Packet Pick Up & Reg.
8:45-9:15 – 1K Start (8:45am - Kids 3 & under, 9:00am - Kids 4&5, 9:15 - Kids 6 & up)

PARKING and ARRIVAL Parking will be available in the parking lots at Alton Baker Park, located at 100 Day Island Road, Eugene, OR. When you get out of your vehicle you should see the Eclectic Edge Start/Finish flag. Proceed to the sign marked Registration/Packet pick up.
COURSE MARKINGS The courses will be marked with large signs staked into the ground and white arrows on the ground. All miles will be marked. Course marshals will direct you at critical junctions. If you are wearing headphones, please be sure to have them at a volume low enough to hear course marshal instructions. Important: Go the direction you are going (stay on the path you are on) unless you see an arrow, a sign or a marshal.
COURSE MAPS All courses have been measured with USATF certification devices and are accurate in distance. The half marathon completes one small loop and two large loops. The 5K does one small loop then goes out to a turn around location and comes to the finish line. To see course instructions, pick up a map at the registration tables.
SWITCHING DISTANCES If you decide on race day that you are going to switch events, you must tell the timer in the red Eclectic Edge Racing truck at the finish line before the race starts.
CHIP TIMING Your timing chip will be on the back of the perforated strip on your race bib number. Please take care not to bend, crumple or tear off the perforated tag. Wear your race bib on the front of your outer-most garment (shirt, jacket, pants, etc). Thank you!
