Due to the size of our event, strollers are ONLY allowed under the following conditions:

  1. Running with strollers is NOT allowed in the 5K. Only walking with a stroller.
  2. Strollers in the 5K MUST line up in the final two waves, on the right hand side, as strollers do not fit through the starting gate.
  3. Please be prepared as the last section of the course is on the race track!  Think thick dirt!

We thank you in advance for your cooperation. The policies are in place to ensure the best and safest experience for all participants

While we love our four-legged friends, dogs are not allowed due to the size of the event and running thru the Arboretum (where peacocks and other wildlife live). Please leave them at home race morning.

The event takes place rain or shine!
