ELECTRONIC SCORING
This race features a state-of-the-art electronic scoring system. All participants will receive an electronic scoring chip, which can be attached to a shoelace (or other garment). Finish time and position are automatically recorded electronically when you cross the finish line. Scoring chips will be collected in the finish chute.

An out-and-back course of exactly 3.1 miles. Starts and finishes in the Village of Arroyo Grande on Short Street behind the Swinging Bridge and heads out Branch Mill Road to a turn around point just past Coach Road. The course is relatively flat - a couple of slight hills at about 1.2 miles and just past the turn around point. Water station at mile 2. Course Map
