Club race day logistics:

7:15am - Meet and park around the back of Pete and Lisa’s RE/MAX office: 2375 Huntington Drive, San Marino. Bathrooms are available and there's street parking. It is only a 5 minute walk to the race start. You should have plenty of time to check in, get your shirt, and return to put it in your car. We will then all start walking to the start for the club photo about 7:40.

7:45am - Meet under the Start/finish line for the club group photo. This is an annual club race so wear your Foothill Flyers clothing.

8:00am - Race start

9:00am - As soon as we've finished cheering everyone across the finish line, we will assemble in front of the race backdrop for our club finishers photo. Then we'll walk back to our cars. Following the run, Pete and Lisa Loeffler host a red, white and blueberry pancake breakfast! Breakfast also includes bacon, yogurt & fruit, mimosas, and coffee. Let the celebrating begin!

We are all smiling for having finished and are looking forward to mimosas and blueberry pancakes.
