      Strollers are allowed at all of our events. We just ask that you be considerate of other participants and start the race at the back or side so as not to impede or injure other runners and walkers. Remember you and your stroller take up more room that just a runner or walker, so please give yourself and others around you plenty of space to participate safely.
