Stroller Starts

Guava Family + Run Nash are teaming up to make running more accessible for the WHOLE family! New this year we will offer two stroller sections at the start to help both walkers AND runners get into their race pace safely and efficiently.

During the registration process, you will be asked to identify if you will be running with a stroller. After answering yes, you will then be prompted to choose your pace range. Those who identify as a running pace will be allowed to start before the general race giving them a chance to safely and easily get to race pace. Those who identify as joggers or walkers will start in the designated corral towards the back of the back

Those who have already registered and want to add themselves to the stroller sections can update the custom questions on their RunSignup participant dashboard until 10/30.

Water, electrolyte drinks, and energy gels will be provided on the course. Official fuel locations will be shared closer to race weekend.
