Male, Female, and Non-Binary categories will be scored for the results. Those who do not choose one of these three categories will not be scored.
The top three overall in each gender for the Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K winners’ times will be determined by the gun/bell start; age division winners will be scored by chip timing.
A timing chip will be included with your bib number.

Physically Challenged Athlete Division
Pamakid Runners Club and Kaiser Permanente believe that individuals with a disability deserve the inspiration, support and opportunity to participate in athletic endeavors that promote healthier, active lifestyles.
This category will require pre-registration as a PC Athlete and will be excluded from age group categories. Because this is a self-defined category, any disputes or challenges about finish results or eligibility will be determined by a race sub-committee and their decision will be final.
Whether this is your first race or just the latest of many, here's everything you need to gear up and get set to run.
