Race Etiquette

To help facilitate a positive race experience for all runners and walkers, we ask that you practice standard 5k etiquette:

  • Runners who are chiptimed will line up first with non-chiped timed runners lining up behind them. Please look for signage. Chiptimed runners will begin the race at 2:00 and the non-chiped timed runner will follow shortly after.
  • Should you need to walk, please move to the far right of the street and try to ease your pace into a walk instead of abruptly stopping.
  • Allow runners to pass on the left.
  • Please pass slower runners/walkers on the left.
  • If you see a runner who needs medical attention, please alert a Course Marshal.
  • Run or walk in pairs only.  No groups of three or more across the street as it would block other runners from passing.
  • Do not wear another runners bib. It is mandatory for runners to register for the race so each participants signs our waiver. Also, wearing another runners bib will alter the race results.
  • No dogs may accompany runners/walkers in the 5k.
  • No bicycles are allowed on the race course (except for designated bike marshals).
  • While strollers are discouraged, participants may run or walk with a stroller BUT they must start at the very back of the race (even if running with a Girl on the Run participant).

Parking

There is plenty of street parking  surrounding race village.  You can also park in the lot across the street from the Indian Center, in the parking lot north of the zoo at Riverside Park.

Weather Policy

Race officials may cancel, delay or change the event in case of extreme weather or other conditions that may affect the safety and health of the participants. In the event of cancellation, refunds will not be issued.
