Trail Race Etiquette:
Trails are mostly about freedom, but we have some trail etiquette reminders for a safe, fair, and enjoyable experience for all.
Respect the Environment
Discard of trash properly
Stay on the trial (no shortcuts)
Stay Right, Pass on Left
Yield to faster runners by stepping to the right
Runners going out on the out-and-back (8K/16K course only) should step right and yield to runners coming back
Listen for Runners
(If you must listen to music) earbud levels should be low enough to hear runners coming up from behind
Encourage one another
Keep bib exposed on your front shirt or shorts (especially at the finish, the 8k/16K turnaround, and the 16K split).
Respect the final decisions of the race director and the race timing team
No Pets on Race Route
Due to the large number of participants and some narrow trails, we do not allow dogs on the race route. This is for the safety of the runners & furry friends.
Lounging is a post-trail race tradition.
Please bring your lawn chairs and stay a while after you race to cheer in other finishers and enjoy our band.
Spectators are encouraged to stay off the single track trails and utilize the main double-wide trails. The best viewing will be the start and the finish area. Bring lawn chairs for race viewing and the after party.
