EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION
In the event of an emergency during the race, please dial 911 immediately. The Race Director for this event is ANDY BRADY. Please keep phone number (989) 205-5838 and contact Andy immediately after dialing 911.
Volunteers using the parking lot East of Huntington Event Park or the parking structure West of the park should clarify with parking staff that they are participating in Team One Wine Run to avoid a $5 parking fee.
The race will start on Franklin Street and will head South on the streets to Janes before turning West and heading to Water Street and entering the River Trail Pathway. Runners/walkers will then head South along the River Trail until reaching a turnaround point near Ojibway Island and returning to Huntington Event Park along the same course from which they came. There will be a final turn INTO Huntington Event Park before crossing the finish line through a blue arch. Don't stop at the green start line arch spanning Franklin Street!
Please note that run/walk traffic is heading both directions on the course! Runners and walkers are asked to stay to the left of the pathway once return run traffic begins to pass heading South toward the finish line.
Those working packet pickup should arrive to Huntington Event Park no later than 3:30PM
All race course and aid station volunteers should arrive knowing their course location. We will meet near the finish line at Huntington Event Park at 5:30 to answer questions and pick up reflective vests (for those on the race course) before you will be released to your assigned positions. Please be aware that, with the exception of a few course volunteers, you will have to find your way to your location.
