LOCATION
Central Broward Regional Park
3700 NW 11th Place
Lauderhill, FL 33311
(NE Corner of Sunrise Blvd. and US 441)

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!

PACKET PICK-UP AND REGISTRATION
Picking up your bib and race shirt the day before the start (today!) will save time and stress on race day! Packet pickup and registration is from 12 - 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 from 6 - 6:45am on Saturday, May 7 (race day), but remember to build in enough time to pin your bib to your shirt and still make it to the starting line. No packets will be distributed after 6:45am in order to ensure an on-time race start. 

If you are under 18 years of age, a parent/legal guardian must to sign your waiver. Failure to do this will affect your ability to participate in BiG Cardio.

RACE DAY PARKING
ALL parking is located at and run by the Broward Performing Arts Center. Parking opens at 5am and will cost $5 for the day (this is a BPAC fee).
For the safety of our runners and to ensure an on-time start, the park gates will be closed at 6:40am and reopened at 8:00am.
