Each competitor is responsible for knowing the race route, though monitors may sometimes help out by

giving directions. Please look at the course map and/or ask for directions before the race.

Most of the monitors will be students, and will often be athletes not competing in that particular race.

Visiting schools are invited and encouraged to contribute monitors or other assistants for the officials. (See a

Punahou coach for details.) Any monitor or other race official may take action on an observed violation. All

violations will be reported to the Head Finish Judge for final decision.

Following are the rules for running the course: The purpose of these procedures is to allow

competitors to enjoy good fair competition and to prevent misunderstanding.

(b) Do not interfere with another runner's progress by veering left or right to prevent passing.
