PET & STROLLER POLICY
Leashed dogs are invited to run or walk with their owners for the mile. However, we ask that they line up at the back before the event begins for a staggered start. Parents pushing strollers will be able to participate. Children under the age of two (2) years riding in a stroller do not have to register.
