Will the race be canceled because of the weather?The race will not be canceled for weather. Thanksgiving often has snow, rain, wind, and sleet. We have a large parking garage at the finish to get out of the elements before and after the race.
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.
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.
How do the Runner Pace Corrals work?
Runner Corrals help the runners organize themselves at the start line according to their anticipated pace. Each corral has a sign next to the entrance showing the pace per mile for that corral. The corrals are set up so that you enter the back of the corral from the side. Just before the start of the race, the front of each corral is opened creating one large corridor to the start line. Pace Corrals help create an even flow of runners and reduce bottlenecks along the course caused by faster runners being stuck behind slower runners. They also maximize safety by creating entrance and exit points in the corral in case of emergencies.
Is there a lost and found?
If you lose an item at the race, please visit the Blue Runtastic Information Tent during the event to see if it has been turned in. Items not picked up at the event will be taken to our office. Please contact us at email@example.com Lost items not claimed after one week will be donated.

Are strollers allowed in the race?
Yes strollers are allowed in all of our Thankful 13 events, but we ask that you start in the back to not be a hazard to other runners.
