We are committed to providing access for runners, walkers and wheelchair athletes in our events. However, we must institute course time limits to adhere to municipal requirements.

Those who finish outside of the time limit may not be recorded as official finishers and may not receive full on-course support from Aid Stations and traffic personnel.
Safety for all participants is our first priority and we are happy to permit strollers for a fun family outing.

Passing out flyers and/or placing flyers on car windshields is absolutely prohibited at Track Shack Events. In some municipalities this practice is unlawful, creates litter and can leave a venue in a worse condition than when we arrived. People found passing out flyers will be asked to stop distributing and to leave a venue that has been rented by Track Shack Events.
