Can I bring a stroller?
Strollers or baby joggers are only allowed in the 5K walk. These participants are required to line up in the back at the start. No strollers or baby joggers will be allowed in any of the running events.
What is chip timing?
All events will be chip timed. There will be an electronic chip on the back of your bib number which will automatically record finishing times for participants. Participants in these events will cross a timing mat on the ground at the finish line.
Do I have to wear my bib number?
Yes. All participants must be wearing a bib number on the front and outermost layer of clothing. Failure to do so will result in your finishing time not being recorded and could result in other participants' finishing times to be recorded incorrectly.
Can I use an MP3 player, iPod, etc., while I'm participating?
MP3 players and iPods are allowed but we ask that you keep volume levels to a reasonable level in order to hear instructions from race officials, law enforcement and course marshals.
Can I bring my dog to the race?
Dogs are allowed in the walk only and must line up in the back so they do not interfere with the runners.
Do I have to register twice if I want to enter more than one race?
Participants who wish to enter both the 15K run and 1 mile run are required to have a separate bib number for each event and must register twice and pay for each. Another example would be a child who participates in the 5K walk and then runs in the 1/3 mile event.
Other important course and finish line information:
Participants who are not registered are not allowed on any of the courses and may not cross the finish line. Registered participants are only allowed to cross the finish line one time. Please do not go back out onto the course to meet up with a friend and cross the finish line a second time. Bandits are not allowed. No bicycles, in-line skates, rollerblades or rickshaws are allowed on the courses at any time. Participants who fail to meet these guidelines will be disqualified and face being banned from future Hot Trot events.
