How to Qualify for these secure Start Corrals:
Assignment is based on a submitted qualifying time run in a recent Bay Race, Half Marathon or Marathon. These are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Assignment to these Corrals is not guaranteed and must be confirmed by the Bay Race Staff.
Qualifying times must be submitted in the form of a link to a race result or race result page from a previous Bay Race, half marathon or marathon run no earlier than January 2010. Please copy and paste the link of your previous result in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
