Race Day Guidelines

Here are a few tips and guidelines that we ask all participants to review and keep in mind to ensure our event is safe, efficient, fair and FUN!

  • The front of the START line is for the fastest runners; those usually expecting to do under-6 minute miles. Slower runners should find a place farther back in the runners pack on Foster Dr. before the start of the race. There will be numeric signs on tall PVC poles along the side of Foster with 6, 8, and 10 indicating target minutes per mile to help place runners before the start. Please, no last second team pictures in the front of the Start line. There is a photo area with a Moms on the Run banner for team pictures by the Registration Tents.
  • Those children under 10-years old registered for the Kidlets event and issued a bib number  “1” should not participate in the 5k Run or 10K Run events. They may participate in the 5K Walk and should start behind the Walker Corral sign and yellow rope, located behind all runners. All participants who wish to participate in the 5K and 10K run, including those under 10, must register as a runner and pay the full entrance price. All participants who wish to participate in the 5K walk, of all ages should register and should pay the appropriate entrance pricefor any running or walking event.
  • Moms on the Run is a charitable event for the benefit of women of Northern Nevada while they are in treatment for various cancers. We are very unique in that the funds we raise go DIRECTLY toward assisting these women and their every day needs. Plus, all funds raised here, stay here - we are proud to stay 100% local. We are dependent upon our volunteers, commercial contributors and the awareness of our participants of our mission to raise money for those that need it. We ask that attendees and participants honor our efforts by sharing in the festivities, respectful of our desire that everyone enjoy themselves but exercise personal restraint in what is offered freely. No one should participate in any event without paying. Of course, Moms on the Run is open to the public and visitors and family are encouraged to cheer for family and friends that participate.
