Restrictions – Safety is our first priority!

For everyone's safety - no strollers, bicycles, roller skates, in-line skates, and dogs will be allowed on the race course.  The use of headphones is discouraged.

Walker Friendly Events
Our mission is to promote running, walking, and general fitness in group settings. Walkers are encouraged to participate in all races.  The finish line chute will remain open for one hour and 30 minutes.

Children Under 12 (runners OR walkers)
For their safety, children under 12 are strongly discouraged from lining up with the elite runners at the start line.

Sponsors of The Lakeland Runners Club, Inc. help us promote running in our community. We are glad to have them as they are local businesses who support what we do, and are often filled with our fellow runners. We hope you support them in return.
