FINISH LINE MEDALS, FOOD AND WATER
MEDAL GIVERS: Unwrap medals and hang on belt holders. Make runners come about 20 feet through the arch to minimize congestion.
Give them a medal and usher them them through to food and water. Keep finish line chute clear. Do not allow runners/parents to go back into finish line chute.
FOOD AND WATER: As runners finish, usher them out of the finish line chute to minimize traffic. Hand them one bottle of water and granola bar. Offer bananas on the table and let them pick them up, but don't distribute to every runner.
If bananas are popular, we made need to cut them in half to help ration them to accommodate more runners.
