Race Etiquette

  • To help facilitate a positive race experience for all runners and walkers, we ask that you practice standard 5k etiquette:
  • Please do not push or rush to the starting line once the gun goes off (or the countdown hits ZERO).
  • Should you need to walk, please move to the far right of the trail and try to ease your pace into a walk instead of abruptly stopping.
  • Allow runners to pass on the left.
  • If you see a runner who needs medical attention, please alert a Course Marshal,
    Caped Crusader or Bike Patrol.
  • Run or walk in pairs only. No groups of 3 or more as it would block runners from
    passing.
  • Do not wear another runners bib. It is mandatory for runners to register for the race
    so each participants signs our waiver.
  • Strollers are welcome, but are asked to start at the back of the pack, even if they are
    running with a GOTR participant.
  • No dogs or other pets can accompany runners/walkers in the 5k.
  • No bicycles are allowed on the race course (except for designated bike marshals).
  • iPods and other personal music players are also highly discouraged. Running music- free helps to make the race safer and allows you to really take in the atmosphere of the race!
