Bag Storage on Race Day:
There will be a manned tent near the finish line which will be on the track around the football field for bags and clothing that you do not want to run with on race day. Leave dry clothes etc for after the race in case of rain. No valuables please.
The first 300 pre-registered racers will receive a t-shirt and there will be water, bananas, and gatorade for all racers at the finish line.
Strollers, Bicycles, Racing Chairs:
We welcome stroller runners and racing chairs in our race. However, as a courtesy to other runners, we ask that stroller runners start at the back of the pack. The course will be run on streets through the neighborhood of Northwoods which will be protected by traffic cones. Bicycles however, are not allowed on the course due to safety concerns
