RULES OF THE ROAD:
All routes are planned on OPEN city or county roads. Please run in single file, except when passing another runner. You are required to follow any and all direction from members of the police department, sheriff's department or any other volunteers directing traffic and/or runners along either route.
Both routes will be clearly marked with mile markers at each mile. Participants MUST run on the LEFT SIDE of the road; this is where road markings will be located.
No strollers, baby joggers and/or other wheeled equipment are permitted for use by participants. No dogs are allowed on either course route.
THERE ARE SOME HILLS. Please feel free to drive the routes prior to signing up. Their difficulty will be based upon your experience and comfort level in running.
WEATHER & ROAD/TRAIL CONDITIONS:
This event will go on (and has) in the rain, snow, sleet or sun... please dress accordingly.
Also note that approximately one-third of the 1/2 Barrel Route will follow The Glacial Drumlin State Trail. The Glacial Drumlin State Trail is made of compressed gravel; built and maintained by the DNR on a decommissioned railroad as a state bike trail. As such, it is fairly level and flat and often used by runners for recreation and training. Please note that there are many shaded areas along this route that will be significantly cooler than other parts of the race.
