We anticipate a crowd on race day so we have secured free parking at the Territorial Prison, which is right across Snowy Range Park from Optmist Park. Please feel free to park there if parking isn't available close to Optimist Park on race day.
Jackalope 5K Dog Policy
Although we will not turn away people who bring their dogs with them to run or walk the event, we must remain considerate to our race participants. Our goal is to provide a well-organized race with quality timing, awards, and an overall excellent event. In order to meet this goal we have the below rules pertaining to dogs:
Owners must clean up any dog waste left on or near the race course!
Dog owners must have control over their dog at all times during the event
All dogs must remain on leash at all times while at the event, retractable-style leashes are not permitted
Only well-behaved dogs will be allowed to participate in the event
Race participants who want to run/walk with their dog(s) must yield to other participants during the race and not cut in front of others
If a dog or dog owner is found to be disrupting the event, they will be politely asked to leave the race site as to provide the best possible experience for the general participant population
Please use common sense and be respectful of others
