Can I check in my gear/personal belongings?

Can I walk the event?
We love our walkers. We ask walkers to be aware that course time limits are race specific. For road races, we ask for a 16 min./mile pace. If you fall below this pace, we can unfortunately no longer guarantee course support—which is paramount for your safety. Aid stations, medical support, portable toilets, and road closures will start to become unavailable to participants. The local police and race organizers will ask you to reroute to a shorter version of the course, or move up onto the sidewalk where you will be required to obey regular traffic laws.
Where are the aid stations?
Race participants will receive hydration and/or nutrition at the following course locations:
5K - Approximately mile 1.5 (Turn around) on Long Branch Trail (See course map)
