Restrictions- Safety is our first priority!

Bicycles, roller skates, in-line skates, and dogs will be prohibited from the race course. The use of headphones is discouraged.

Walker Friendly Events

Keeping Central Florida Fit is our mission. Walkers are encouraged to participate in all Track Shack races. Municipalities require that road ways are clear of participants and opened as soon as the race is complete. That is why a maximum pace of 16 minutes per mile is set. If the pace isn't maintained, race officials will ask you to move to the sidewalk to re-open the roadways.

Stroller Restrictions

• Stroller/jogger operators start behind designated stroller signage.
• Stroller/jogger operators may walk/jog no faster than 15 minute per mile, a safe operating speed. If your speed goes faster than 15 minutes per mile pace, you may be disqualified.
• Stroller/jogger operators must yield the right of way to runners. Stroller/Joggers can tip easily and cannot turn quickly. Please do not weave through packs of runners.

B-Tag Scoring

The B-Tag by ChronoTrack is the timing device used to score participants. The B-Tag is attached to the back of your runner bib. 

In order to receive an accurate time, please confirm your bib is:

  • Clearly visable on the FRONT of the torso.

  • Unaltered or modified. Do not fold or wrinkle or you risk breaking the timing chip.

  • Pinned in all four corners so the timing chip stays flat.

  • Not covered with jackets, water bottles, etc so as not to block the reading of the timing chip.
