Q: What time do I need to arrive to register and get my shirt?
A: Runners please arrive no later than 8:30. Race starts promptly at 9:00. For walkers, registration begins at 7:00. The earlier the better.
Q: Should I sign up as a walker or a runner?
A: You should register as a runner if you want your time recorded. If you are going
to try to run the event, but may end up walking quite a bit, sign up as a walker. The price is the same, the water stations and route are the same and there is a walker finish shoot.
Q: Are strollers and dogs allowed?
A: If you sign up as a walker and start at 8:00 am (or before), you will be fine.
Safety dictates that dogs and strollers are not allowed at the 9:00 am start time. There will be about 400 runners, half will complete in about 1 hour. Best to stay out of their way and enjoy your day.
If you choose to bring your dog, we'll be happy to share our water, but remember, the pavement can be very hot on their paws and you may end up carrying your pooch over the finish line.
