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.
Will the race be canceled because of the weather?
The race will not be canceled for weather. January often has snow, rain, wind, and sleet. We have tents and other measures to keep you safe from the weather.
Can I bring pets?
No, pets are not allowed on the course or in the start/finish areas. For your pet’s safety and the safety of all event participants, pets are prohibited. Even if they are on a leash they pose a tripping hazard. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.
Is there a lost and found?
