Race directors reserve the right to reject any entry for any reason. The race is partly run with traffic on a state highway, so dogs are forbidden. Jogging strollers are allowed. Those observing poor manners towards motorists or not obeying the traffic marshals will be disqualified. The race has been certified by USA Track & Field. There are no refunds for cancellations.

All proceeds will benefit the Owego-Apalachin Central School District cross country team and other OACSD youth sports.
