No bandits please, this is a charity event and your participation as an unregistered participant messes up the timing.
Faster runners should line up towards the front, walkers towards the back. 25 people ran a sub 7 minute mile last year, they should be on the front line.
There are no water stops on the course, bring what you need.
Mile 1 and Mile 2 will have clocks.
Course is marked with arrows, cones and will have course marshals at major turns. It’s okay to thank them!
The race is timed according to “Gun Time” meaning your finishing time will be the actual time between when we all start and when you finish.

Be courteous to any vehicles you see. They likely belong to residents who live alone the course. Wish them a “Happy New Year” and defer to them.
