FAQ

Should I stop to smell the flowers on the trail?

If you do, please be careful!! There are poisonous plants, such as poison ivy, along the trail. We encourage you to follow the course and stay on the trail!

What about bugs?

Bugs also like to smell flowers.  Please remember your bug spray!

Will there be police at busy intersections?

There may be police at some of the intersections however, runners should NOT expect law enforcement to stop traffic and course volunteers are not authorized to stop traffic. The majority of the course is on the trail however, when the trail crosses roads or when participants are off the trail the roads are OPEN and the rules of the road prevail. Volunteers and law enforcement will assist you when possible but it is your responsibility to ensure your safety particularly when crossing roads or not on the trail. 

Can I have someone run with me as a Pacer?

Sorry, only registered participants are eligible to run on the course during the event.

Will there be mile markers and turn around point markers?

Yes, the mile and turn around point markers will be located on the course. Additionally, volunteers with signage will be located at the turn around points.
