Q - What is the minimum age to register for each event? A- Although we welcome all family members we recommend runners be at least age 15 for the 10K/ 5K. Ultimately, it is up to each parent or guardian depending upon their child’s ability to participate in our event. Only registered participants with Bibs attached will receive finisher medals.
Q - Are dogs allowed on the course? A – While we love our fur babies we discourage bringing your pet to the event. Our Hoffmann Hounds Pet Therapy dogs will be available for all the snuggles pre and post race. In addition, wagons, roller-blades, skateboards, scooters or bicycles of any kind are NOT allowed on the course for safety reasons.
