Registration and Bib Pickup

You may also pick up your bib on race day morning at McDougle, 6:30-7:45 am.

Stroller and Pet Policies

Baby strollers/joggers are permitted, but for the safety of all participants please start at the back behind the runners and walkers.

Pets are not permitted on the race course.

Walkers are welcome!

We encourage everyone to join us at our events. If you want to walk the course, that's great. However, if the trailing police car passes you, you must follow normal pedestrian rules -- move to the sidewalk or side of the road. Our timing service tries to capture the time for everyone who crosses the finish line, so even if the police close the course, you should receive a finish time.
