Final Comments

This is supposed to be a fun event. Anyone can do this, I don't care what your pace is. The first year we had a dog run a leg. In this event, that's fine. If you do that, put Rover on the completed leg planner that you submit (Rover doesn't have to pay a fee.)

If you are a solo runner, I can't guarantee support at the exchanges. If you have any questions or comments, e-mail me at damascusfreedom5k@gmail.com.
