Race Details

Oak Bay Marina
1327 Beach Dr, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
 
10K - 0630 start    (must be finished in 1hr 20 min. at which time the 5K will start)
 5K - 0800 start
 
There will be a bag drop at the start of the race.
 
Do not fold your race bid as it will damage the chip.  Please ensure bid is on front of shirt.  5K runners ensure you do not set off your race bib chip by standing to close to the start of the race when cheering on the 10K runners.
  
Time Limits
To ensure that roads reopen to vehicular traffic at the scheduled times, course time limits will be STRICTLY ENFORCED. Participants must maintain a pace faster than the course time limits in order to complete the race on closed city streets. Cut-off locations will be enforced on the course; runners or walkers who do not reach the cut-off location by the communicated time will be advanced forward on the course, or shuttled to the finish line area. Please note – cut-off times are calculated based on participants’ timing tag time, not starting gun time. Course time limits begin when the last participant and Tail Vehicle cross the start line.
The race staff would like to thank you in advance for considering these etiquette tips as you enjoy the run!  Please pay attention to pre-race instructions – both print and verbal. What you read and hear will not only help guide you through the course but will also keep you safe.
 
Run or walk no more than two abreast. Other runners will want to get by you.

If you are stopping at a water station, move all the way over to the table. Grab water and move away from the table so that others may get water, too.Move to the side if someone behind you says, “Excuse Me” or “Coming Through”.When you are approaching the finish line, you may see loved ones cheering you on. Please do not encourage anyone to join you in the finish line stretch. Your support team is very important, but please communicate that the race course and finish area is for registered participants and staff only. 

Race Bibs
Each runner will be issued a race bib at Race Packet Pick-Up. Please wear your assigned race bib centered on the front of your outermost garment. It is your responsibility to wear the bib number during the race.
 
Please confirm that your bib is:
Clearly visible on the front of the torso
Unaltered and unmodified (do not fold or wrinkle)
Pinned in all four corners
Not covered with shirts, jackets, etc.
 
MyLaps Timing Chips will be used to record the race timing for the all race categories electronically. Runners must ensure their timing chip is securely attached to the back of their bib.
 
HOW DO I USE MY TIMING CHIP? The Timing Chip is a disposable one-time race timing tag which is attached to the back of your race bib.
 
WHAT DO I DO WITH THE TIMING CHIP AFTER THE RUN? You do not need to return the Timing Chip and can dispose it after completing the race.
 
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE TIMING CHIP GETS WET? The Timing Chip is completely weatherproof and will work regardless of rain, heat, storms, humidity or other inclement conditions.
 
HOW DO I MAKE SURE THAT MY TIMING CHIP WORKS? Each Timing Chip is checked and verified for functionality before it is distributed to each participant. The Timing Chip is always “on standby” and will not need to be activated. It will be eective when placed within 1 metre of the timing mats located at the start, finish & split points on the race course.
 
WHAT SHOUD I NOT DO WITH THE TIMING CHIP? Do not bend, perforate or remove the Timing Chip from the race bib. Any unauthorised alternations and amendments to your race bib and/or the Timing Chip will result in disqualification.
 
WHAT IS A TIMING CHIP TIME AND HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM GUN TIME? Chip time is recorded by the electronic Timing Chip that is attached to the back of your race bib. Your Timing Chip records the time at which you cross the 2 layers of timing mats at the start Line, finish line and at the several split points in between. Chip time is often shorter than gun time because it begins only when a runner crosses the start line, while gun time begins once the start gun is fired; many runners don’t cross the start line until several minutes after their ocial gun time has begun.
 
HOW ACCURATE IS TIMING CHIP TIME? Chip time is the most accurate form of run timing available because it measures the exact time between a runner crossing the start line and finish line. Chip time also records several important splits, providing an accurate record of each runner’s progress and pace.
 
Have a great race!
