Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
Would you like to run, walk or cheer Bill on during his route? The best way is to meet up at the central checkpoint in the parking lot of the Bohan building at the corner of 12th and Demonbreun (124 12th Ave S.). Look for the Swiftwick tent.
Estimated checkpoint times when you can meet Bill during the day and join him on his route:
Checkpoint 1: 5 to 6 a.m.
Checkpoint 2: 7 to 7:30 a.m.
Checkpoint 3: 9 to 11 a.m.
Checkpoint 4 (final stage): 2 to 4 p.m.
Keep in mind that on a run this long, times are in ranges and may vary. You can call (615) 838-5640 on Saturday to get periodic updates about Bill’s location via a prerecorded message. You can also get hourly updates on this website.
Another important note is that the run will be at Bill’s 56-mile pace. You can go at your own, but don’t expect Bill to go faster or slower to accommodate. But he sure would love you to join him!
