The goal of Make It By Midnight is to finish as close to midnight (without going over) as possible. You set your own start time based on the finish time you predict. Starting times will vary with each runner. For example, a marathon runner with a four hour predicted finish time will start at 8 PM. A predicted six hour marathon runner will start at 6 PM. Likewise, a half marathoner with a predicted 2 hour finishing time will start at 10 PM. All participants will sign in with their starting time taken from the official clock on the starting table. After finishing, participants will sign out with their finishing time taken once again from the official clock. Because of the scattered starting times all runners must keep track of their own race time (runner's honor). Finisher medals and other swag will be given out to all Marathoners and Half Marathoners. Also, a tiara will be given to those who finish before midnight and a pumpkin to those who don't. The course will be a repeated 6.55 mile loop on residential roads with rolling hills, beginning and ending at the Lake Wildwood Clubhouse.
