Start corral assignments are only for the half marathon.
Your start corral assignment is based on your expected pace entered during the event registration.
You can find your start corral assignment when you receive your BIB at packet pick-up.
Your start corral letter will be listed next to your BIB number.
You can move back/down in corrals but not forward/up. (e.g. a runner assigned to Corral A may line up in Corral C but a runner assigned to Corral C will not be allowed to line up in Corral A
