START TIME: 7am SHARP!
We will start the race at 7am, so we ask that everyone is in the start chute/corral 30 minutes prior to the start (at 6:30 a.m.). We will be loading the corral from the front. Highly recommended that you plan for traffic and parking delays. DON’T BE LATE. We will start at 7:00 a.m. SHARP!
Prayer walk will also start at 7am and will take place at the lake. Please meet at Corporate Shelter #1 and proceed from there.
All other activities begin in their respective areas at 8:30am.
Please refer to Event Schedule for more details.
PACKET PICK-UP AND REGISTRATION
Picking up your bib and event shirt the day before event day will save time and stress on race day! Packet pickup and registration is from 4pm - 7pm at Central Broward Regional Park. All participants must pick up their own packet because everyone needs to sign a participant waiver. You CANNOT pick up a packet for a family member or friend.
Packet pickup is available starting at 6am on Saturday, May 6 (race day), but remember to build in enough time to pin your bib to your shirt and still make it to the starting line.
If you are under 18 years of age, a parent/legal guardian must sign your waiver, included in online registration or in person at walk-up registration. Failure to do this will affect your ability to participate in BiG Cardio.
RACE DAY PARKING
PARK GATES CLOSE AT 6:30AM. PLEASE ARRIVE BEFORE 6:30AM TO AVOID HAVING TO PARK OUTSIDE THE PARK.
All event parking is located inside park. For the safety of our runners and to ensure an on-time start, park gates will close at 6:30am and reopen at 8:00am. The park charges $1.50 to enter park after 8am.
