Safety & Rules

We want everyone to enjoy a fun and safe 5K this winter. Here are the do’s and don’ts for the day:

Running with little ones

Backpacks are great for walking with kids that can’t do it on their own. Strollers and baby joggers are allowed in the last wave.

Anything beyond your own two feet

You can walk, jog, sprint or skip – but please don’t bring ice skates, sleds, cross country skis or anything else that lets you glide your way to the finish.

Walking or running with friends and family

It’s great to enjoy the day with your friends and family, but keep it to three abreast or less along the course so others can get by.

Costumes

Go ahead and dress up however funny, funky or silly you like, but make sure your costume doesn’t extend beyond your body or connect you with anyone else.

Rocking out

Feel free to bring along your iPod and headphones, just keep the volume low enough that you can hear any instructions from course marshals.

Course cutoff

Everyone needs to get past Folsom & Arapahoe by 11:30am to stay ahead of the pro women who are blazing trail behind you. There will be a group of cutoff walker volunteers wearing bright orange shirts to help you stay on pace.

Pets

Rudolph is a great training partner, but you’ll need to leave all pets at home on race day.
