Blue Diamond Almonds Shamrock’n Half Marathon

Wave Start Details for the Half Marathon
In an effort to ease congestion along the course, the race features wave starts. Simply put, a wave start consists of staggered starts of groups instead of one giant start for all participants. Runners are placed in “waves” consisting of other runners of a similar pace. Each wave has its own start with a short “time cushion” between each wave. We hope the wave start creates a safer, more enjoyable experience for all participants.Wave starts will be assigned and announced no later than Thursday, March 7, 2019.


Race Day Packet Pickup Only 6:30am – Raley Field (no race day registration)
Wave Start Times 7:45 am — Wave 1 8:00 am — Wave 2 8:15 am — Wave 3
Course Time Limit There is a course time limit of 4 hours from the start of Wave 3. Roads open to traffic at 12:30 pm.

It was a wet afternoon at the inaugural Running of the Elves tonight in Elk Grove, but that didn’t dampen these runners spirits. Love to see the smiles. 😊 👍 Race Results: bit.ly/38h3HK6 #runningoftheelves @CityofElkGrove @district56eg pic.twitter.com/FDOkSFUSJZ
