Selling your entry or running the race under someone else's entry will result in disqualification from this year’s race and potential exclusion from future events.

Restrictions:
Please be aware that due to subtle rises and expansion joints on the Walkway, we are unfortunately unable to accommodate wheelchairs, strollers, or any other wheeled equipment as the wheels can get stuck and provide a hazard for participants.
