Is the public allowed?

Yes. Come check it out and cheer on the runners and walkers! If you are a participant, invite your friends and family to cheer you on and join the party. If your invited guests wish to enter the beer gardens, they will need to wear one of your guest wrist bands (to be included in your race package at Friday pick-up). Also, ALGC ID regulations in effect, so please bring government issued ID to avoid disappointment.

Are bikes, skateboards, or rollerblades allowed?

Nope. For safety reasons, please keep these items off the course.

What about strollers or dogs?

Dogs are allowed as long as they are on a short (8ft max) non-retractable leash, to ensure safety of participants on staircases. Strollers are welcomed on the 3.5km walk course. One steep, but manageable, 500m paved hill climb exists at the 2km turnaround/ water station.
