Corral system in effect at start line

  • Published
  • By Air Force Marathon Office


To help expedite flow at the start line of the half and full marathons, a corral system will be used for this year’s Air Force Marathon.

Based on a runner’s time entered at registration, he or she will be assigned to corral “A,” “B” or “C.” Corral assignments will be marked on the runner’s race bib. 

At visibly identified corrals near the start line, marathon volunteers will be stationed at each entrance to verify runners are entering the proper area. As the race begins, volunteers will move the group forward to the start line. 

Runners assigned to corral “A” must ensure they are in the corral for the 7:30 a.m. start. They will not be allowed in the corral once the start gun goes off and will be directed to corral “B” or “C.” Runners in corral “B” will take off next at 7:37 a.m. and “C” at 7:50 a.m. 

Runners may move back a corral but cannot move forward.
