Trail Race Etiquette:

Trails are mostly about freedom, but we have some trail etiquette reminders for a safe, fair, and enjoyable experience for all.

  1. Respect the Environment

    • Discard of trash properly

    • Stay on the trial (no shortcuts)

  2. 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

  3. Listen for Runners

    • (If you must listen to music) earbud levels should be low enough to hear runners coming up from behind

  4. Compete Cordially

    • 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

  5. 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.

  6. Post-Race Lounging

    • 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.

Spectator Options:
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.
