Laps will be tracked for each runner using MyLaps ProChip timing & scoring
system. As each runner crosses over the mat to mark a “split,” the system will
record it. Since the mat will be passed each time the runner circles the
course, each split is thus equal to one lap. One word of caution
regarding the counting of laps; Only completed laps will count towards your overall total mileage.
Pacers: This is a very runnable course and pacers will not be allowed. You would have to work hard to get lost and in the
spirit of competition try to do your best on your own efforts.
two or more registered runners though can run together as much as they desire.
This is true no matter which race you are entered, all runners will be
using the same course.
Trekking Poles: No Poles Allowed.
