Are strollers allowed?
Yes, we want this to be a family friendly event. For your safety and the safety of the other runners and walkers, please stay vigilant of those moving around you.
Why will the kids participating in the Kids Mile Fun Run NOT receive a race shirt?
Our goal is to encourage as many kids as possible to participate in this event. In order to make that affordable to the registrants, we decided to provide a blue and white neoprene bracelet with the name of the race and a motivational quote to all Mile Fun Run participants. The design and purchase price of this bracelet makes it possible for us to only charge a $5.00 registration fee. As a result, your child will have a unique memento from the race that you won’t have to wash after each wear.
Where can I park for the event?
There will be several locations to park that are conveniently located to the event start. First, you will be able to park at Hoppy’s Landing which is on the right hand side before you cross the causeway. From Hoppy’s Landing, you will only need to walk or jog no more than a 1/2 mile to the registration table, number pick, and race start. You can also park in a spacious field on Sconticut Neck Road less than 1 mile from the start. Just park your car and you will be shuttled to and from the start.
Can I use an iPod during the 5K run or walk?
The choice is yours. We will have the course blocked off to residential traffic. However, wearing an iPod-like device does impair your ability to be fully aware of your surroundings. Additionally, you may miss a fellow runner or spectator pass on some words of encouragement to you while on the course.
