We’re celebrating five fantastic years of Rock the Parkway, which has become one of the largest and most popular half marathons in the Midwest! Both the half marathon and the 5K have sold out every year. The fifth annual event in 2014 offers several of the features that have made it so popular, plus many new benefits:
Half marathon: 7:30 a.m.
5K: 8:00 a.m.
This year Rock the Parkway again will offer a wave start for the half marathon instead of starting everyone at the same time. Each participant will be assigned a starting wave based on the expected finish time entered during the online registration process. The starting chute will have eight different corrals; your bib number will indicate the corral you start in, and your bib will be color-coded to that corral. You will be allowed to move back to a slower running group in the starting corrals but not forward. Each wave will start by corral approximately 2 minutes apart, and the corrals will move forward after each wave starts. We are once again using chip timing for the start and finish, so regardless of which wave you start in, your start time will be when you cross the starting line.
