    PETS

    There are NO DOGS ALLOWED at this event! There are no exceptions. Event Permits are at risk if you or your family or anyone cheering you on brings their dog.

    CARPOOLING/ EVENT PARKING

    In order to have a successful event day for everyone and to comply with the parks parking requirements, all of the event participants will be required carpool. Alice Lake has given us permission to use 50 parking spots only for our event. Failure to comply with this will result in our event being shut down.

    We would like to thank Shred Shuttle for supporting us and our events in the past. 

    CHIP TIMING

    We focus on being present, our journeys to get to the start line and we challenge everyone to release the pressure we put on ourselves to run timed. We encourage all paces and abilities to look around and take in the whole experience. Thank you for being apart of that. Our events focus on your race journey and not your finish time. We celebrate all finish lines no matter the time, therefore do not have chip timing.

    Thank you Odyssey Medical Inc. for providing our event day medical service.
