• What should I wear?
You should wear comfortable clothing that is weather appropriate. Check the weather listings closer to the time of the race to determine what is weather appropriate. Jeans or khakis are usually not comfortable to wear. Every participant MUST wear sneakers/ running shoes to avoid any injury. PLEASE DO NOT WEAR SANDALS OR FLIP FLOPS. You might want to consider wearing some type of hat or baseball cap, as the sun will be out during the walk/run.
• Do I have to decide if I want to run or walk at this time?
No, you do not have to decide yet, but we suggest you decide about 2 months before the event. If you decide to run and have never run that distance, you will need to train so you can successfully complete the distance and avoid injuries. If you decide to walk, getting some consistent level of exercise before that day is recommended. For some more specific tips on how you can get yourself ready, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are expecting to have about 300 people to participate in the event. We will also have volunteers on site. The runners start first and then the walkers shortly after. The local police department will be present to guide us and direct traffic.
