Do you run or do you walk?
Some people, with the best of intent will sign up for a 5K or a 10K RUN without properly preparing. Then on raceday they are out walking on the running course after they realize they cannot actually run the whole distance. Please help us keep the runner's course clear with only runners. Pick the correct event for your capabilities so you are not a walker on the runner's course. Walkers have their very own and very scenic course along the waterfront! Thank you for this courtesy.
