START CORRALSThe Turkey Trot started utilizing corrals for the beginning of the race in 2013. Corrals will continue to be used in the 2014 Turkey Trot race. Participants will be assigned start corrals based on their predicted finish time. Please make sure that you accurately predict your estimated finish time. Start corrals will be listed for participants on their race bibs. Participants who choose to push a stroller will NOT be allowed to run the race however they are welcome to walk. Participants and strollers will be in the last start corral.
Official results for the UW-L Turkey Trot are provided by PT Timing and we utilize MyLaps BibChip timing system. Disposable chips are imbedded into participant's bibs ensuring the most accurate finish time for each participant. Trotters time will start when they cross the start line and end when they cross the finish line. Unofficial results are available at the finish line and the overall results will be posted in the Recreational Eagle Center at the conclusion of the race and complete results will also be online.
Turkey Trotters will be placed in corrals consisting of other participants of similar pace. Each corral has its own start with a short cushion of time between each corral. This will help create a safer more enjoyable experience for all trotters.
Corrals have been assigned based on participants predicted finish time. There will be a 23:00 minute cushion between corral 1 and corral 2. All corrals after corral 2 will have a two minute cushion time between them.
Please arrive to your assigned corral prior to 9am. The trot will start at 9am sharp. You must line up in your assigned corral and will not be allowed to run in a faster corral than you are assigned to. You may however move back to another corral if you wish to participate with others.
