Do I need anything in order to pick up my bib? No, you do not need to bring anything, although you may want to bring a bag for all the stuff, especially if you are picking up for multiple people. We no longer offer packets or bags in order to reduce waste.
Can I run one of the races if I am not registered? No, you may not. Only registered participants are allowed on the course during the event. Any individuals not wearing a bib or suspected of running un-registered will be asked to leave the event and could be banned from further participation in Duluth Running Company events.
Is there a cut off for the run? We do not pull anyone off of the course, however, we do have time constraints placed on the event by the Duluth Police Department and the City of Duluth so we cannot keep the course open beyond 11:30 AM and most parts of the course are opened to vehicle traffic by 10:30 AM. If athletes remain on course after the course is re-opened to regular traffic, they are expected to follow all pedestrian traffic laws as they make their way to the finish at Leif Erickson Park.
Can I park at the start area? Parking is not allowed on Skyline or Glenwood Street to allow for shuttle and athlete access to the start area. Please plan on taking the shuttle to the start. Individuals that park on Glenwood Street do so at their own risk.
Can I start the races late? No one will be allowed to start late.
Can I wear headphones or ear buds? We highly discourage headphone and ear bud use during this event to ensure your safety and the safety of others.
Is my pet allowed on course or at the event? We do not allow pets of any kind at our events or on the course. This is for the safety of all participants and all of our animal friends. For participants with service animals, please reach out to race staff directly through our contact link so we can ensure your, and your service animal's safety as well as communicate expectations with our events team on race day.
