Participation in Run the Rocks

Participating in a trail running race, or race training clinic, is a potentially hazardous activity. Registrants agree to participate only if they are physically able, are willing and able to carry the mandatory gear, and agree to abide by all rules of the event. Registrants will seek a physician’s advice and approval if they have any doubt as to their physical ability.

Registrants must complete and sign a waiver prior to commencing the event. Minors are only allowed to participate in the event if they present a waiver that is signed by a parent or guardian. The race rules and regulations are for the participant's safety and the safety of the other participants in the race.
