_ The 2018 Rainbow Falls Head Start 2.75M:
Tired of the same old type of races? Then join us for a unique race experience with our 2.75 mile “Headstart Race”. Runners will start in waves (see below for details) based on gender and age, otherwise known as a handicap format. This type of format evens out the playing field, and gives older runners and female runners a chance to finish higher up in the overall standings, and perhaps even be the first to cross the finish line!
Wave 1 – Women 70+ and Men 80+ - 12 minute headstart
Wave 2 – Women 60-69 and Men 70-79 – 8 minute headstart
Wave 3 – Women 50-59 and Men 60-69 – 5 minute headstart
Wave 4 – Women 40-49 and Men 50-59 – 3 minute headstart
Wave 5 – Women 0-39 and Men 40-49 – 2 minute headstart
Wave 6 – Men 0-39 – no headstart
Mostly flat, loop course in Golden Gate Park, with start/finish at Kennedy Drive near Transverse. Race day registration and bib pick-up starts at 8am, race begins at 9am. All runners receive a finisher ribbon with place ribbons to Top 5 overall M/F runners.
