The course is on the trails of Pinchot Park. You will encounter rocks, roots, uneven footing, and other features of running on a forest trail. There are some hills of moderate elevation. The width of the trail varies. There could be mud or wet/soggy areas of the trail, depending on the weather. Early November in Pennsylvania can be pleasant, or not. Please put your dog’s welfare first! Please do not enter your dog if the distance is beyond your routine training run. Additional notes regarding your participation with your canine friend will be covered in the waiver. All dogs need to be licensed and up to date with shots. Proof of rabies vaccination is required. Dogs need to be leashed and under control at all times. Sociable dogs are welcome. The race director reserves the right to exclude any dog for apparent health-related concerns on race day. Please clean-up after your dog. Plastic bags will be provided at registration/packet pick-up.

*Please, no flexi-leashes.
