Water, Snow, Dogs & Strollers
Dogs are welcome in the park, but we ask that you leave your pup with your spectators during the run for the sake of congestion on the course.
Please no strollers on this course.
Walkers and joggers are welcome! Don't worry about your pace, come out and enjoy the day with us!
All 3W Events maintain a cup-free finish area. Bring your own water bottle. At the finish line, there will be no cups. You can leave your water bottle at the finish/start area in the designated bin, or in your car, as parking is very close to the finish line.
We will run, even in snow. Plan accordingly. Wear layers, bring dry shoes for after the race, run more carefully on slippery surfaces....
If the Parks Department restricts use of the park or the Police Department restricts use of roadways for commuting to the event because of some "snowpocalypse", then watch here for updates and check your email.
