Question: Can I sign up for the run portion to be timed even though I want to walk it?
Answer:  Yes, however, if you sign up for the timed run with the intent to walk it, you must follow that full 5k course, NOT the shorter walking path.  Not following the running course will throw off the timing results for the race.  

Question: Can I run/walk with a jogging stroller?
Answer:  Yes! However, we ask that you start in the back or off to the side & be mindful during the run/walk to ensure everyone's safety.
