You see, our 1st race was in late December, right near Christmas. But of course, we are supporters of all faiths and holidays!
We ask that you refrain from running with your dog. Strollers are discouraged but if you start at the end of the pack and do not pass other runners unless there is ample room, we won’t take issue. Please be aware of the other runner’s space. The route follows some narrow paths.
