Voting for our favorite costume takes place LIVE on the Judge’s stage right along side the Finish Line
Judges will score you from 1-10 (judges are on the left as you cross the finish line). You’ll be judged for originality, enthusiasm, and difficulty to run in. Make sure your bib is visible to the judges as you pass the finish line. If you think they missed you visit the VIP tent after you finish so they can get a good look at your costume. Cut off times for judging is 15 mins before your Costume Contest Ceremony begins. Half Marathon and Quarter Marathon runners will all be scored together. Meaning 1st 2nd or 3rd place could come from either event.
