  • Race numbers are required to participate, and must be worn on the front of the participant.
  • No coaches, bikes, in-line skates or skateboards will be allowed on the course. Anyone who is running with “additional items” (ex. a jogging stroller) must begin in the back of the pack at the starting line. Any runner who is out on the course and determined to be a hazard to other participants may be removed. So don’t start running people over with your baby jogger.

Time Limits

The time limit for the half marathon is FOUR HOURS. To ensure that roads re-open to vehicular traffic at the scheduled times, the course time limits will be STRICTLY ENFORCED. Participants must maintain a pace faster than the course time limits in order to complete the race on closed city streets. Please note – this is timing tag time, not gun time. Course time limits begin when the last participant and Tail Vehicle cross the start line. If a participant remains on the course past the four-hour time limit they will be notified by the police and no longer remain part of the race. Only those who finish within the four-hour time limit will receive a finishers medal. No refunds or awards will be given to a participant if they do not meet the required time limits.

Cancellations & Refunds

Entry fees are NON-REFUNDABLE and entries are NON-TRANSFERABLE. Sorry, no exceptions. Once we receive and accept your entry, you will not receive a refund if you cannot participate. You may not give or sell your number to anyone else. For questions contact Cheryl Lankford.
