Q. Are dogs allowed?
A. No, dogs are not allowed at this event. As a member of RRCA we observe all guidelines and recommendations related to safety. Dogs present a risk to other runners and with the narrow trails on our course, present a tripping hazard for participants. Dogs and crowds often don't mix, even with the best behaved dogs due to tripping hazards and unpredictable behavior. In crowded, unfamiliar places, even well-mannered dogs can become unpredictable and protective of their owner. All participants must sign a waiver stating "If I violate the safety guidelines I accept legal responsibility for any injuries I may directly or indirectly cause to myself and/or others."
Q: Are strollers allowed?
A: Strollers are strongly discouraged at this event. As a member of RRCA we observe all guidelines and recommendations related to safety. Strollers present a risk to other runners, and the course in particular has various types of terrain including uneven terrain, rocks, shells, and narrow trails. Anyone with a stroller would need to understand that they need to line up at the very back and by signing the waiver "I accept responsibility for any injuries I may directly or indirectly cause to myself and/or others."

A: We prefer that you register online ahead of time, please. Registration closes at 6:00 pm the day before the race. You can register on race day, but the registration price increases to $15 per person and $30 per family (2-4 people). NOTE: Race-day registrations are CASH ONLY.
