Only the competitive wave is timed and all awards are given from this wave. The competitive wave is always the first wave of the day. For the day races, that would be the 9am wave and for the night races the 6pm wave. If you wish to be timed, you must be in the competitive wave. The competitive wave costs an extra $10. For those of you that aren't interested in running the competitive wave but would like to know your time, there are large digital clocks at both the start and the finish lines.
