We do allow strollers at the event. We ask, though, that anyone using a stroller follow a few guidelines to ensure everyone's safety and fun time:
- At the start line of the 5K, please begin at the back to provide the best safety for all participants with the beginning congestion of the race.
- If you have signed up your little one for the 5K but intend to stroller them, please make sure the Race Directors are aware of your child's bib number. There are some younger athletes that DO run the entire race that may get awards for their time,therefore a strollered child is disqualified for age group awards. (But all participants with bib numbers still receive finisher's medals regardless of the amount they did on foot or on wheels.)
Packet Pick up on Race Day will be located inside Ambrose Hall (see map)
You can enter the building from the back parking lot, following the path, passing the Faulkner building on the north side of the grounds.
