Start line -

We ask that you self seed at the start line, meaning that faster people start in the front and slower runners/ walkers start in the back of the pack. There will be signs at the start with approximate pace times, please start in the area with your expected pace time.

Jogging strollers -

Though we love your children, we advise some caution when considering use of jogging strollers on this course as the trail will be in use in both directions and is not very wide in all spots. If you decide to bring your child along in a jogging stroller, you will be asked to start in the back of the starting pack, regardless of your running pace in order to insure the safety of other runners.

Water/Aid Stations -

There will be one water/Gatoraid aid station at about 1 mile. Of course, you will hit this again after the turn around so you will see it again at around the 2 mile mark. You may bring your own water bottles, or use the paper cups provided. There will be portable restrooms at the start/finish area. In order to make this a green and enjoyable event for all, please dispose of any gel wrappers, bottles, or any other garbage you may want to shed yourself of during the race at any of the aid stations throughout to race. Keep in mind, volunteers will need to collect any trash left on the course, please dispose of your items as close to the aid stations as possible.
