We have no age restrictions however we do ask for parent or guardian signatures on all minors under 18 years of age.
There are 2 water stops along the 10K course and 1 along the 5K course. We will have a truck monitoring the route with water and acting as a “SAG” wagon. We will have many volunteers along the course to help with directions as well as waterstop support from a local non-profit we support. Signage is marked on the ground, directional signs on the side of the road, overhead signs and a biker will lead both courses. You’re going to LOVE running a Coastal Race Productions event!
