WAVE CORRALS

In an effort to promote safety, the Turkey ROCK Trot will be using an assigned wave system for the start. If you wish to run or walk with others at the event, select the wave of your slowest person for all registrants. Note: You may move to a slower wave than assigned, but you cannot move to a faster wave than assigned. Remember your time does not start until you cross the timing mats.

Wave #1 – This wave is for anyone planning to RUN at a 8 minute per mile pace or faster.
Wave #2 – This wave is for anyone planning to RUN at a 8-10 minute per mile pace.
Wave #3 – This wave is for anyone planning to RUN at a 10-12 minute per mile pace.
Wave #4 – This wave is for anyone planning to RUN slower than a 12 minute per mile pace.
Wave #5 – This wave is for ALL leisurely walkers with strollers and dogs. Yes, and you too “night before Thanksgiving” partiers.
The number of waves are at the events discretion for safety and enjoyment of all participants and may change as needed.
