To register online as a Seeded Runner:

  • Register under the "Seeded Runners" category and in the field that says "List your qualifying 10k race/time below."  Please provide the qualifying race name, your time and link to the race's results page. If you would like to register before the race you plan on qualifying at, you can do so; please just list that race's name, date and website and we will confirm your time.


All qualifying times are subject to review and verification.  If you do not provide a link to the results page, you will not be seeded in the faster groups.  Seeded Runners who provide a sub-45 min finishing time and are accepted will be assigned to groups A, B, or C based on their time.  Seeded Runners will line up in the first two corrals on Race Day, allowing them a clean-start and to begin with our Elite Athletes.
