Participants are responsible for arriving at the start corrals assigned to them, based on their best pace, and entering at the designated corral entry points before the corral closing times.
Your official (net) finish time is recorded by the timing system from when you cross the starting line to when you cross the finish line. This time determines the order of finish and age-group award winners—except the top finisher awards, which are determined by gun time (the time from the starting horn until the runner crosses the finish line). Start timing mats will be removed after the last corral starts the race, unless the size of the field warrants keeping the start open longer. After the start has closed, net times will not be recorded. If a runner starts after the timing mats have been removed, no start time will be added.
The Statesman Capitol 10,000 is conducted on USATF-certified courses. Participants must stay within course boundaries at all times. The course is typically marked by barriers, traffic cones, delineation, and/or other markings. Participants must recognize and understand event signage and symbols relating to the course, directions, and facilities, and must follow the instructions of course marshals and event officials. Failure to do so may result in disqualification.
