FAQs

  • Will the race be canceled because of the weather?

    The race will not be canceled for weather.

  • Where can my family watch me run?

    To watch and support your runners please find a viewing area that allows you to drive and park without interfering with the runners or course. Please park in parking lots. Do not park along the runner’s path (course).

  • For winter races: Are the roads and trails snowplowed or de-iced?

    We do our best to keep the courses as runner-friendly as possible. This includes snowplowing portions of the course and putting sand or salt down on potential slippery sections. Although we do our best to make the course as safe as possible please be aware that because of winter weather the course could have ice, water, and snow on it. Please prepare and plan accordingly and be especially careful around turns and sloped sections.
