Parking Important

The primary parking lot charges for parking $6. Remember the parks do need your funds. There is also free parking across the street at multiple business locations.

Important Notes: Your chip is on your bib. Your bib must be on the front of your body and visible at the start and fininsh if you expect a time.

IF you pick up a bib and decide not to run, please do not bring your bib anywhere near the finish line. The automated system will pick it up. This is an out and back course. Half Marathoners WILL hit traffic coming back. Please be kind and step out of their way. This event is for many charities so please be patient with the traffic. There will be MANY walkers. All participants STAY RIGHT ON THE PATH AT ALL TIMES.

DO NOT START EARLY OR YOU WILL AFFECT OTHER RUNNER PLACES. Please do not change distances without notifying someone in registration before you start. Once again you could affect someone that takes this serious.

The finish line is a nice metal arch and labled "Finish". The start is further down the road from the finish. Be down there 10 minutes BEFORE your scheduled start. Faster runners in front.

Amenities
1. Have a great time supporting your cause.
2. Drinks and Fruit.

Volunteers
1. Encourage the runners and ask them to stay right on the paths.

Course Information Important
1. The events are for fun and charity. If you are a competitive runner please keep in mind this is on a trail system and there will be a lot of traffic. Just be polite and work your way through.
2. If you are a walker, please keep in mind people are running. Stay to the right and do not block the path.

What is Sevathon?
Sevathon is the walkathon that aims to set the standard as the largest social and service platform of its kind. It recognizes, supports, and nurtures a spirit of giving by empowering individuals of diverse backgrounds to unite and strengthen their communities. Walkers, runners, non-profits, sponsors, family members and friends are all part of the Sevathon family, as they enable each non-profit organization partner to deliver its message and further its cause.

What is Sun Salutation/Surya Namaskar Marathon?

Surya Namaskar Marathon is series of Sun Salutaions practice with breath/body synchronization. An individual sets a goal and practices Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) daily starting with a small number and gradually increases the count per day to reach the goal. The idea is to complete the targeted rounds of Surya Namaskar during the Sevathon event. The duration of the event preparation and execution is 6  - 8 weeks.
