The setup for race day started in Caras Park Friday, including the race results tent.

Competitive Timing is the company in charge of tracking racers for the second year in a row. This year friends and family can track runners, too, with text message alerts and mobile apps.

“All of those tools give them a means to keep track of themselves or their friends and family. So you don't have to be a race participant to utilize any of those tools,” said Competitive Timing’s Matthew Smeltzer.
