Can I run with my mobile device?

The answer is a qualified yes.  We do not encourage headphone use but do not disallow them as long as they are used safely. For this reason, we will allow headsets on the course only if you do not pose a safety risk. For safety reasons, it may be necessary for a course official to ask you to remove your headset/earphones during the race. You are required to comply or face disqualification and removal from the course.

Can I bring my baby in a stroller/jogger?

Strollers Welcome! We ask that walkers with strollers start behind the runners so everyone will be safe! Note: No runners with motorized vehicles, roller blades, bikes or dogs will be allowed on the course as our insurance policy does not cover these. Protection will be provided at all intersections by volunteers or the Leavenworth County Police Department.
