Strollers and dogs are welcome to join you during the race
The course is stroller and dog friendly (just as long as your pooch is well-behaved, leashed, and under your control at all times). There will be a special “pet pit stop” along the race route to provide dogs with drinking water. Participants with strollers and dogs will also have their own special start group.
Exciting post-race party with lunch and refreshments
