Race Policies 

Runners must arrive at least 10 minutes prior to race time, or they will not be permitted to run. We begin picking up the course immediately after the race begins to reduce the time for road closures. 

  • Strollers are allowed but must be in the last wave.
  • No dogs
  • No Headphones*

*Participants wearing headphones are less aware of their surroundings and may not be aware of (1) starting line announcements; (2) instructions on the course from race management and volunteers  (3) warnings that participants have strayed off course; (4) friendly warnings from another participant that is approaching to pass; and (5) finish line/chute announcements. Event personnel must be able to communicate with participants before, during and after the race.


DJ Student Showcase

Make sure to stick around after the race, so that you can rock out with DJ Suspence!



Want to help out during the race?  We always need volunteers to work various aspects of the event. If you are part of a club or organization please write it down during your registration.
