  • To adhere to pedestrian and traffic laws.
  • To run and walk on sidewalks whenever available.
  • To be respectful of other pedestrians on the Greenway.
  • To make myself visible to traffic and other pedestrians by wearing reflective gear and clothing.
  • To address my medical needs and overall health to ensure I am medically able and properly trained to participate.
  • To maintain safe and cautious behavior to avoid accident and to prevent injury.
  • To enhance my safety by maintaining full awareness of my surroundings and agreeing to participate without headphones, animals or other potential distractions.
  • To carefully navigate the designated course for each event and adhere to the assigned route.
  • To respect the members of the community where we run and walk.
  • To respect fellow participants while promoting their safety and well-being.
