You will receive a running number/race tag to be worn for the entire series. You must wear the number/race tag assigned to you to receive the correct results. Race number must be worn over the stomach on the outermost layer of clothing. Race crew is not responsible for any errors due to incorrectly worn race numbers.
Cheating: All though the number of runners who attempt dishonest practices are few, this reminder is provided to help insure integrity. Race “Marshals” are placed at various points along the course to check for leaders in each division. You, the runner, can also help. If you see a “course cutter” or a “jump in” anywhere along the course, please report his or her number to a race official at the Finish Line. Runners discovered in any fraudulent practice will be barred from future races under the Long Island State Park Region jurisdiction. Your cooperation is appreciated.
Post Race Refreshments: Your number is your entrance into the Awards Ceremony and snack area.
Raffles: You must be present to win and registered for the full series. In the event an awards ceremony is cancelled due to inclement weather, names will be drawn at random from race finishers and winners will be notified via mail/email. If a race is cancelled due to inclement weather, the raffles will be drawn at the next race.

Please be sure to:
* Dress in layers
