 - COURSES : Each course will be marked and explained prior to each race. Parents ​and/or family and friends ​are NOT allowed to run with their children and must remember to stay in designated areas and off the running course. We need to ensure we have a safe running course for all the runners, regardless of age or speed. *Courses subject to change on race day due to field conditions.*

 

 - CONDUCT : Good sportsmanship is a big part of what we are trying to teach the athletes. We hope that the parents will help us with this on and off the race course. Poor sportsmanship will not be tolerated. If anybody is found displaying poor sportsmanship, runner or spectator, appropriate action will be taken including but not limited to warnings, suspensions, and/or disqualification. Review runner's etiquette tips below with your young athlete to ensure a safe and fair race for all.

  • Runner's Space: you and other runners are entitled to your space, but it is your responsibility to maintain a safe distance to ensure you nor the other runners are in danger.
  • Cutting Runners off: with the above said, please remind your young athletes, cutting runners off is not good sportsmanship. All the kids are excited to get to the finish line, but try to stay in your lane without pushing, shoving, or cutting someone off. Warnings will be issued with time penalties and disqualifications to follow if participants continue this behavior.  
  • Passing Runners: as some parents may know, when passing runners or cyclists in an event, it is custom to say "on your left", to not startle that person you are ready to pass. 

 

 - WEATHER : We run rain or shine. We only cancel a race due to course conditions and severe weather conditions. Please make sure to follow our social media pages, as that will be the quickest form of communication to all athletes for any last minute race day changes. No make-up races will be made and no refunds will be given.

 

 - AFTER RACES / RACE BLING : Races are timed, with the exception of the 50 and 75 yard dash. Participants will receive points accordig to their standings after each race. On the fifth race, medals will be given to each participant. Top 3 trophies will be awarded to those participants that have completed in all 5 races. All race bling will be handed out at the fifth race, after all athletes have completed their race. Results will be posted after each race, by Tuesday. You will receive an email with directions on where to find the results.
