Race-day set up began at 2:30 pm along the parkway of Hurlbut St within Norwood Park, near the finish area. Chris Whilite of Dick Pond Athletices managed a pop-up market of shoes and accessories for runner must-haves. Runner check-in and packet pickup opened at 6:00 pm and ran right up to 7:30 pm. Featured Event 5-Km racing began at 7:35 with a blast of the air horn by co-RD Michelle Thom. The 1-Mile Lunar Orbit started exactly five minutes later.
