As a condition of that sanction, we FORBID baby joggers in the race.  For purposes of safety too, the use of  headphones are strongly discouraged (you don't need to be oblivious and grooving with your ear buds in the midst of more than 2000 runners around you).  

 

These rules are imposed for the safety of all participants. Please spare us, and you the embarrassment of being asked to leave the course and perhaps ruining your day.  

 

NOTE : Any conduct such as using anything other than the provided portable toilet facilities which are found in abundance will also be grounds for disqualification. You will should be easy to I.D with your bib number.
