- Course limited to runners and walkers that can maintain a pace of at least 20 minutes per mile.
- Please NO Headphones. No headphones will be permitted by runners/walkers participating in the event.
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; Basically, when you can’t hear what is going on around you, you lose one of your most valuable senses—at a time when you need all of your senses working. Even if a participant is cognizant or their surroundings and “wants” to be aware, the inability to hear clearly is a significant risk factor that cannot be ignored. Event personnel must be able to communicate with participants before, during and after the race.
