1. What if I am a really slow runner or need to walk most of the course.  Will you pull me out of the race?
A.   NO.  No cut off times. Period. 

2. What if I am not feeling well leading up to the race?

A. Please stay home.  We are doing all that we can to follow CDC, State and Local Health Dept. guidelines as it pertains to Covid-19.  Do your part and be considerate of others and just stay home if you do not feel well or have been exposed to someone that has Covid-19.  We will defer your registration to 2023 with notice.  No shows will not be deferred. 

3.  Is it ok if we bring our dog?

A.  Not really.  a.) The Park does not allow dogs and all of the activities will be within the Park.   b.) Out of the park is neighboring lawns and we don’t think it’s very nice to have your dog hang out in someone else’s lawn all day. c.) Dogs and other dogs don’t always mix.   d.) We love dogs, but this isn’t the venue for it.  Sorry.

4.   Can my friend run alongside me to pace my run and keep me company?

A.  NO.  No-one other than registered athletes on the course.

5.  Can I bring items I may need while out on the course?

A.  Yes.  Marathon participants can bring a Special Needs bag with whatever you think you may need.  It will be at the halfway point/turnaround for you and we will put a sticker with your bib# on it and a volunteer will be there to help you find it.

6.  Will you have aid stations on the run course?

A.  Yes.   There are 7 aid stations out on the course,  3 with port-a-johns.  They will be stocked with water, Hammer Nutrition Gels, Electrolytes, Heed (to mix in a water bottle), bananas, oranges, chips, cookies, granola bars, candy.    

7.  I may need to walk some of that run course.  Will the aid stations and finish line still be up?

 A.  Yes.  NO cut off time.  Period.
