Every participant receives a goodie bag, medal, and t-shirt. The top three finishers in each race will receive a special award immediately after finishing the race.

Parent/Guardian Runners
One adult will be able to run with a child in the ¼ and ½ mile races. No adults are allowed in the one mile race.

There will be a designated parent drop-off and pick-up area for the races. Parents will be issued a lanyard in the goodie bag and only adults with the lanyard will be allowed into pick-up/drop-off area.

Baby Joggers/Strollers
Due to the size and density of this event, baby joggers and strollers are prohibited. The inclusion of strollers in races increases the potential for injury to race participants and children.

Race Cancellation Policy
The races will continue rain or shine. Only if there is lightening will the races be cancelled and will NOT be rescheduled. All registered participants can still pick up their goodie bags and t-shirts at the scheduled packet pick-up times. Upon cancellation, participants who show their race t-shirt or number at the museum Friday September 27 through Sunday September 29 will receive two free admissions to the museum.
