Heats of less than 4 can take a 2nd "Fun Run" if they choose and time allows, but the results of the first race will represent the official results. Conciliation runs are given. In the case that a group's size is not a factor of 4 the athletes with the slowest time trials will race in a Last Chance Qualifier bracket for an opportunity to advance.
