Q:  Can I run with my dog?  

Although we are dog lovers we do ask for the comfort and safety all of the participants that you leave your four-legged friends at home.  

Q: Can I run with a jog stroller?

For the safety of our participants, we ask that if you plan to run with a jog stroller you start at the back. This will help to keep our runners and strollers from getting tangled

Q: Are there water stations on the course? 

NO!  There are not water stations on the course.  If you would like water, please bring a reusable water bottle. 

Q: When and how can I use my Aquarium pass? 

Each racer bib provides admission to the Aquarium on Race Day. If you have spectator friends or family interested in visiting the Aquarium on Race Day, please reserve their tickets at NCAFF Admissions.
