FirstHealth Pinehurst Turkey Trot and FlapJack Fest

Sat November 23, 2019 Pinehurst, NC US 28374 Directions
EVENT SITE RULES

Gun start time vs chip time:  The race results will contain both a gun start time (the start time of the race) and a chip time (the time from when your timing chip crosses the start mat).  Times used for awards and reported to USATF are the GUN START TIMES, which is standard USATF practice.  This means that competetive runners should make sure to start as close to the front as possible.  Less competitive runners, walkers, and those with strollers should start at the back.

Headphones:  While headphones are no longer banned in USATF sanctioned races, they are discouraged.  If you choose to wear headphone, you will not be eligible for awards.  Please be considerate and safe.  You need to be able to hear safety officials, cars, and other participants.

Strollers:  Strollers are welcome!  Please be considerate if participating with a stroller by being aware of other participants and starting in the back of the group so that you will not be in the way of competitive runners.

Do I have to run?  Can I walk?  We welcome everyone at the Pinehurst Turkey Trot!  Runners, joggers, walkers, skippers, strutters, sidesteppers, etc!  Please be aware that because of limitations of course safety officials and volunteers we do have a cutoff time of 2 hours.  As long as you can cross the finish line within that time, then do it in whichever method you prefer!

Weather:  In the event of inclement weather the following procedures will be followed:

The event will be postponed in hopes the inclement weather will pass. If the inclement weather does not pass in time to complete the event safely in the original or modified format, the event will be cancelled. 

Every effort will be made to hold this event on time on this date. Should this event be cancelled due to an Act of God or other circumstance beyond the race directors control there will be no refunds, credits, or transfers.

NO EXCEPTIONS will be made to this policy.

By registering for this event you agree to this weather policy.
