Welcome to Marathon May! Every day from now through the Marathon (and perhaps even a few days beyond) we’ll share a new race-related FAQ here on the blog, our Facebook page and via Twitter feed. Got a question you think we should cover? Post it here, on FB or on Twitter and we’ll get right back to you.
Q: Where do I meet my family and friends after the race?
The very best to meet family and friends is at the Reunion Zone. The reunion zone is located midway between the finish line and the north end of the park. You can’t miss it: as you exit the finish chute and head north towards the runner food tent, gear tent, beer tent, massage, etc. you’ll see it on your right. The reunion zone is sectioned alphabetically, so determine in advance whether you’ll meet according to first name or last name. There is also a message board where you can leave a note for friends/family.
PLEASE do NOT plan to meet your loved ones at the exit to the finish corral. This area is very congested and is not designed as a meeting area. You will be asked to keep moving north as you exit the corral.
Tell your family and friends to sign-up to receive text messages or Facebook posts of your progress on the course; that way they’ll have a good idea of when to meet you!
