Course Closing

The course closes to runners and re-opens to vehicle traffic according to the slowest allowable pace of a 16-minute mile. Waterstops will also close according to that pace. The finish line is the last section of the course to close, at 10:00 a.m. EDT (3.5 hours after the start). To reiterate: The course and runner support do not remain open for 3.5 hours; they close on a rolling 16-minute mile pace. If you are not keeping at least a 16-minute mile, you will not have support (no volunteers, police, water stops, etc.), the streets will be re-opened to vehicle traffic, and you will need to run on the sidewalk.

Finish Line

On the 50 yard line of the University of Notre Dame football field. Finish Line food, provided by Meijer, and water and Gatorade will all be located in the concourse.
