Speed Limits and ParkingObey all speed limits, signage,
and parking regulations while driving through the park. Watch for wild animals crossing the roads.
Race Day Check-inPlease check-in at the registration table prior to the start of your race. Race Bibs
If you want to show up in the results, please pin
your bib number to the FRONT of you somewhere, so that it is VISIBLE. Do not fold or mutilate the race bib, because
it will destroy the attached integral timing-chip. No
on the course will not be tolerated and will result in removal from the race and the results.
Flashlights or headlamps WILL BE REQUIRED for all participants of this race. It's advisable to have both a flashlight and
headlamp. Special Weather-related Safety InformationYour safety is our primary concern.
In the event of severe weather (lightning, flooding, winds above 25 MPH, or tornado), we will shut the race down.
In the event of a tornado siren sounding, please find your way to a "substantial shelter," and wait for the
sirens and danger to subside. Or, if severe winds suddenly hit your location, lay down in a ditch
or low spot (that hasn’t yet filled with water), and put your hands over your head. After the danger
has passed, make your way to a paved road crossing or to a staffed aid station, so that we can get you back to your car or
Injury ReportingIf you sustain any type of injury while on the course, you must report it to the next aid station. We will have trained EMT’s
on staff to assess and/or treat minor injuries. If you sustain an injury that is deemed by the EMT staff
to need further medical attention, you will not be allowed to continue in the race, and will be driven to an area hospital
by our staff or by ambulance.
In the interest of your safety, there will be a cut-off time for the Half Marathon. Dropping-down to another
Distance or dropping-out of the race: You can change your distance before the race until One Week Prior to the Race, by emailing Bad Ben. And during
if you've bit-off more than you can chew, you can always drop out of the race, but you will need to notify the results team, so we aren't searching
for you. Carrying a Hydration Device is Advised:
The Half marathon
for this night race is a 2-loop course.
You have to leave the Main Aid Station (mile 6.5) by 11:00 PM Cut-off time,
to start your 2nd loop.
That's a pace Per Mile of: 16 Minutes, 2 Seconds. Which is 3.74 Miles Per Hour (average).
There will be plenty of aid along the course,
but it is advisable (for your own safety) that you carry a water bottle or hydration system with you. Race
distance on the trail can take much longer than on pavement...don't run out of water!
will be staffed aid stations along the course. The aid stations will offer water & Gatorade.
The course is marked with yellow signs that will tell you "right turn," "left turn," "straight
ahead," and "wrong way." We will mark the course with ground flags and or ribbons at important intersections
or turns. Care must be taken when crossing roadways!
Dogs as Pacers: We are a dog-friendly bunch, within reason. You can run with your (well-mannered)
dog, but it must be on a leash, and you must not let it get entangled with another runner. Register your dog for any race
(online, for $10). It will be issued a bib number that needs to be attached (with your name and cell # written on it with
a sharpie). Your dog will be included in the official results, and receive a finisher's medal, if appropriate for that
distance/race. We won't allow any cruelty to animals, so you must attest to your dog's "trail conditioning."
If it appears that your dog is heat-stressed or otherwise physically stressed or injured, we will ask YOU AND YOUR DOG to
pull out of the race and seek out immediate veterinary help. Please provide water and food for your dog. You can refill your
dog's water at the aid stations.
Upon completion of the race, participants can enjoy post-race food near the start/finish area.
