No, every participant has an assigned bib and chip.

What if I need help along the way?

Can I participate in the event with my dog?
Sorry, as much as we love our pets too, the safety of participants is our main concern. Therefore, we do not allow pets on the course.

Can I participate with a stroller?
Yes, nurturing future generations of runners is a priority and demonstrating healthy lifestyles to our kids is special. Please, however, start in the later part of the runners.

What do I do with my personal items while I’m running?
You can leave your items in your car or have a family member watch over your personal belongings.

Should I bring my own water?
Water will be provided on the race course as well as at the finish line.
