Everyone has goals. Some participants have a specific time goal they want to achieve and other participants simply want to finish smiling. Your personal goal for the day will determine where you should seed yourself prior to race start.
You will see Running Room Pace Bunnies (with bunny ears attached to their caps) holding up signs indicating their projected finishing time. Please seed yourself accordingly. If you are racing for a prize purse you will obviously go to the front. If you are a walker we strongly suggest placing yourself near the rear. Everyone else fits in between.
We know everyone is excited when lining up prior to the gun going off (or in our case, police sirens) and eager to begin their race. Proper seeding creates a smoother race start during the first few miles before everyone starts to spread out.
