Strollers are welcome on the 5K and 10K routes but not on the half marathon because of the trail terrain.

Absolutely! We encourage everyone to participate. All we ask is that walkers start in the back to allow the faster runners to get through. 

All courses will have mile markers. Courses will be marked with directional arrows & signs.

The race will be professionally timed and results posted online no later than the Sunday after race day. The results will also be available immediately following the race.

We love to run with music too!  All we ask is that you consider only having your headphones in one ear and/or keep the volume of your music reasonable so you can be aware of your surroundings and other people on the course.

If you registered for the half marathon but would like to participate in a shorter distance event instead (e.g., 1/2 to 5K), you must contact the race director 1 week prior and we will initiate the transfer process for you.

Less than 1 week notice may result in an additional fee. We can transfer your entry to the shorter distance but you will not receive a refund for the difference in price. If you are transferring to a more expensive event (e.g., 5K to 1/2) you will need to pay the difference in price.

Athletes who cannot participate in the event due to an injury or medical issue only may defer an entry to the following year if the race director is notified 1 week prior AND a note from a physician is received.

Note that if there is a difference in race entry fees, or extra costs (t-shirts, etc.) the athlete will pay the difference. In the event of a deferral to the following year, it is the responsibility of the athlete to contact the race director once online registration opens for the following year.

If you cannot participate, you are welcome to come to packet pick-up to receive your bib number, swag bag and items you purchased in advance. We are unable to store race materials, therefore, all unclaimed race swag, materials and merchandise become the property of Lay It Out Events after the close of race day. You must pick up your swag bag before the race!
