Race/Event Policies

Headphone Use Guidelines

The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at all Badgerland Strider races and events. All participants assume full responsibility for hearing, understanding, and responding to safety directives by race officials and other participants. Participants are solely responsible for personal safety on the course, including but not limited to hearing and responding to external noise(s). Additionally, all participants are responsible for ensuring they do not negatively impact other participants' ability to fully participate in the event as a result of personal music device usage. The Badgerland Striders reserves the right to request the silencing of personal music devises, at their sole discretion, but assumes no responsibility for determining ones ability to hear and respond safely at and during an event. Per RRCA guidelines, headphone usage does disqualify participants from being eligible for state, regional, and national championship awards. 

Baby Stroller Guidelines

The Badgerland Striders recognizes that strollers offer a unique opportunity for parents to include their children in their training/running efforts. However, stroller use is strongly discouraged in group training situations and races as strollers can pose a threat to the safety of others, as well as to the pusher and rider. Should a participant elect to use a stroller, it is at his/her own risk, and he/she accepts full responsibility to ensure adequate space and distance to maneuver, make abrupt stops and turns, and yield to others. Any participant’s stroller use deemed to have a negative impact on other participant’s ability to fully and safely participate in the event, will be asked to be leave the course. The pushing participant accepts full liability and responsibly for any injury or death that results while using a stroller during an event to anyone involved, including but not limited to the pushing participant, rider, other participants, or event volunteers. A stroller is different from an adaptive chair for a challenged athlete. Adaptive chairs are not prohibited or discouraged from events.  

Pet Policy

No pets are permitted at Badgerland Strider races. 

Pets are strongly discouraged at other Strider events and activities including fun runs and build up runs. Pet owners who chose to run with their animal are fully responsible for their pet’s actions. They should keep their distance from other participants and allow those without animals the right of way. They must clean up after their pet. If an animal is disrupting an event or causing issues with other participants, the Striders reserve the right to ask the owner to remove them from the event. 

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), The Badgerland Striders allow service animals at all club events. Service animal means any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. Other species of animals, whether wild or domestic, trained or untrained, are not service animals for the purpose of this definition.
