Details and First Aid Info
Headphones are allowed but you must keep them at a volume that does not distract you and allows you to hear directions and commands. Limited basic first aid supplies will be available at designated aid stations along the course. You are responsible for finishing the race. If you are injured or feel you are unable to finish, inform the volunteers at the nearest aid station. Volunteers will be available on a very limited basis to help you return to the finish. We will attempt to accommodate you, but are unable to provide emergency medical services. It is recommended that you carry your cell phone with an ICE phone number in case of emergency.
