    • SCORING TAGS – This race will use B-tags located on the back of your bib
    • EMERGENCY CONTACT – Please be sure to fill in your emergency contact information on the back of your bib
    • BAG CHECK – We strongly encourage you NOT bring a bag to the race. If you must bring one, there is a bag check area. You’ll need to transfer all contents into the clear drawstring bag provided with your race materials with your bib number ‘bag’ label affixed. You may not put full bags inside the clear bag. Absolutely no bags, backpacks, or hydration packs will be allowed on the course. Any unattended bags will be confiscated by event security and could cause an interruption to the day’s events. We reserve the right to search any bag at any time.
    • TRANSPORTATION – There will be street closings prior to the race so the best way to arrive is by public transportation (bus, PATH train, lightrail or ferry). We are NOT responsible for any tickets runners may incur as a result of parking on the street.

PRIZES: Medals will be awarded to the fastest men, women, co-ed teams, and largest teams. 

VOLUNTEER: There are plenty of opportunities to get involved.  Join us for our next volunteer meeting. Contact us at to learn more or just sign up on
