We should be done no later than 330. Meet me around 730 am at the picnic tables to get on the waiting list, as I am doing registration.

Expect the event to end no earlier than 3PM.
Expect the event to end most likely before 4PM.

Depending on your specific run group, and the way the event is run this time, leaving early may/may not be okay. You won't know until the day of the event.

We're always willing to try and work something on a case-by-case basis. We're probably running split groups -- each group taking about 4 runs, then doing it again after lunch -- so there shouldn't be a problem with completing at least the first set of runs and your work assignment before you have to leave. The rest depends on the size and number of run groups and how fast things progress.

Could I even work two sessions in a row earlier in the day just in case? I have to be gone by 3:00 to get to work in Tampa?? I DON'T want to flake out on working or anything so if it will be a problem then I won't try and run, but if people are OK with that then I will be there early Saturday to get a spot?

If its cool about me leaving at 3 for work then I will try and get there right at 7:30. So I guess I will be a little ahead of you probably? I just want to make sure I get a spot if I'm gonna get up that early . Just need to make sure its OK if I leave at 3 first

You will not incur the wrath of FAST if you leave at 3. We will assign you to an early work group - make sure you find Jamie as soon as you are sure you'll get a spot. We will help you figure out who he is if you don't already know. Worst thing that will happen is you won't get all your runs in. Or we may be finished by 3. Some aspects of the event are beyond prediction. For example:

I just want to make sure I get a spot if I'm gonna get up that early
We cannot guarantee you will get a spot. The earlier you get to the event, the better your chances. We do not know how many openings there will be, nor how many people will walk-on.

Hope to see you there!
