Walkers are welcome at all Final Kick Events. There is an 8 hour time limit, though, so you’ll have to find some combination that will get you through 26.2 miles before the 8 hours is up if you are doing the marathon. No roller-blades, bicycles, unicycles, skateboards, or piggyback rides on faster runners will be permitted.

Course Certification

Mp3 Players

We prefer that you don’t use them, but if you must please keep the volume low or one ear open. The courses are road courses and will likely have an occasional car passing you.
