Restrictions – Safety is our first priority!
Bicycles, roller skates, in-line skates, and dogs will be prohibited from 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.
• Stroller/jogger operators must start behind ALL runners. Our events are chip timed races so your official time will start when you go over the race mat not when the gun goes off.
• Stroller/jogger operators must yield the right of way to runners.
• Stroller/joggers can tip easily and cannot turn quickly. Please do not weave through packs of runners.
