WAVE ASSIGNMENTS:

To ensure the enjoyment & safety of all race participants, Southampton Race of Hope utilizes starting line wave assignments.

Quickly locate your pre-assigned starting wave number on your race bib's label. Corral wave start locations are based on your reported race speed. If you arrive late and miss your start time, report to the final corral. If you arrive with a pet or stroller, report to the back of the final corral. No matter your pace, all racers who sign up after registration has closed, will be placed in the last corral. It's ok to move to back in corrals to race with friends, not forward.

 

Sorry, wave reassignments are not available no matter your pace.

STARTING LINE CORRAL

STARTING LINE CORRALS:

  • Waves assigned by bib #

  • Up to 75 racers/wave

  • 1 min. wave launches

  • In person sign-ups and late arrivals report to last wave

  • Strollers & dogs report to the back of the last wave
