Are dogs allowed? Yes, dogs are allowed on leash, both for spectators and on the course. As always, please bring bags and pick up after your dog.

Are strollers allowed on the course? No.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving we are holding this race as a fundraiser for Options of Burke County, a small non-profit advocacy center that provides empowerment services and emergency shelter to Burke County families in crisis. We have decided to keep the entry fee low, yet maximize funds raised by not including free swag in the race price. Shirts and socks are available, though, and sales will raise additional funds for Options. Shirt and sock orders must be placed by November 4. Limited sizes may be available at packet pick-up and on race day. Or if you prefer to just donate, you can do that, too!
