The course is USATF certified (VA -10004-RT). The race is restricted to the north half of Eisenhower Avenue, which will be closed to traffic and manned by course marshals. Fun runners will run on the same course, with an earlier turnaround point.

If you are running and bringing your child along in a stroller, it is not necessary to pay an additional registration fee.
Note: Children in strollers do not need to register. In addition, do not have your child wear a timing tag if he/she is catching a ride. That tag will read that your two-year-old ran your speedy time and cause confusion in the results!
