Do you need experience to participate in this sport?

No! All new and returning athletes are welcome to participate and compete in this sport. Your coaches will help develop the skills you need in order to compete at sanctioned events. Below are some accomodations that can be made to assist athletes if necessary:
-A rope, tether (6” – 1’) or bell may be provided to assist athletes who are visually impaired. A tap start may be used only for participants who are hearing or visually impaired.
-A sighted guide may not pull or prompt the participant in any manner. The guide must only run on the shoulder or slightly in front of the runner, with the guide rope or tether slack between them. The guide must be behind the participant at the finish.

What happens if there is inclement weather?

Weather cancellations are determined on the day of the program. If severe weather is forecasted during program time, the program will typically be cancelled (thunderstorms, heavy smoke, etc.)

If the program does go ahead (ex. light rain), dress for the weather! Make sure to wear appropriate clothing and check the forecast.
