Starting Line Instructions - Fast runners in the front
       To make sure that everyone has a great experience, we ask that runners lineup according to their anticipated
       -not hoped for-speed:

                  - FAST runners (under 7 minute mile) in the front
                  - 7 to 9 minute milers in the middle
                  - Over 9 minute milers move to the back of the pack
    Walkers doing the 1-mile course should line up at the very end of the runners
    and will look to the course marshals for instructions on the turnaround.
    There will be a sweep walking behind as well.
    Please stay on the left going out and to the right coming back and
    be sure not to block any runners headed to the finish.

        Look for the signs indicating 5K times as you line up for the race.
