Course Rules

It is every participant’s responsibility to know the course and the race assumes no responsibility for any missed turns. Each turn will be marshaled and signed. Courses are pending approval and may change with municipal needs.
Time limit: 10 minutes per kilometer. Starting at the half way mark of the 11k, if a participant does not reach a km mark by this calculated time, the participant will be asked to move to the sidewalk and finish the race as a pedestrian, unassisted by race support. Participants are asked to familiarize themselves with the course route if this situation might be a possibility to them. We wish to minimize traffic disruption caused by our event, and value the support of Police services regarding participant safety.

Participant swag

Every finisher receives the set of two finisher dog tags, including the 1.1k.
The first 450 entrants to the 11k and 5k events receive this long sleeved club t-shirt (the 1.1k does not include a t-shirt). Long-sleeve? Check. Black camo? Check. Fully sublimated? Check. This shirt uses a special club t-shirt policy.
