In our efforts to keep our races and the park green, we will not have cups at the water stations. This reduces the amount of trash and our impact on the park. Water will be provided for filling up your bottles, camelbacks, and other containers at the water stations on the course. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated. Come prepared for the HOT weather. Bring sunscreen and make sure to stay hydrated. Don’t forget a whistle, camelback, water bottle or belt! INSECT REPELLANT IS A MUST!
You will run in areas where nature will offer all its beauty, please DO NOT leave any trace behind you. Every runner must carry out their trash (granola bar wraps, gel packs, paper, etc) and deposit it in the proper places at the finish line, since this race does not have aid stations throughout the course. It is very important to Q50 Races to preserve the environment where our events take place.
Runners not respecting this rule will be disqualified.
It is completely forbidden to extract and/or collect any kind of flora or fauna, rocks, etc. anywhere on or around the course. Enjoy and respect nature! TAKE CARE OF IT!
Each runner will have to cover their medical expenses in case of emergency. Like any competitions of this kind, a medical and travel insurance is recommended to cover any emergencies.
For safety reasons, companions, friends or family will only be able to assist runners at the start/finish line. No pacers are allowed.
For safety reasons, no vehicles will be permitted to accompany any runner at any time during the race.
