Participation Rules & Rrestricitions

Stroller_17Strollers are allowed for your children, provided you opt in during your registration to inform us that you plan to push your child in a stroller. There is no fee required if child is registered as a passenger in stroller. We will provide an identifier for your stroller/child to wear on race day which can be picked up at the Cap10K Health & Fitness Expo. Strollers are defined as something that is pushed, not pulled.

In addition to indicating on your registration that you plan to push your child in a stroller, we invite you to start in our new family friendly stroller area. In the interest of safety for you, your child(ren), and all participants, we have developed this special start area for you and your family.

Yes but, be mindful of our surroundings at all times. It is important that you are able to hear directional commands from race officials and emergency vehicle warnings tones at all times.

Alcohol is prohibited on the race course.

Dog_17Dogs and their owners will not be permitted to enter corrals A or B at the start line regardless of their corral bib assignment. For the protection and safety of all participants the presence of animals in corral A or B is prohibited. Leashed dogs and their owners are allowed to start in subsequent corrals C thru F. Any animal displaying aggressive behavior will be removed immediately from corral with their owner by Austin Police.

 

Timing & Results

The B-tag is a timing device that is will be affixed to the back of each race bib. DO NOT REMOVE the B-tag from your race bib. Please DO NOT BEND the bib number or the B-tag. The tag houses an electronic device that is read by timing mats lining the roadway at the starting line. When the tag passes across the mats the tag is read by an electronic field. This field is similar to scanning food at the grocery store check-out counter. Once the tag is read a start time is registered for your start. The same process is conducted at the finish to calculate your finish time.

No. The B-tag is a one-time electronic timing device. The B-tag will not be collected at the finish line.

Race_Number_17If you’d like to update your bib with your name, team name, or favorite motivational #hashtag you may customize it in your EventDog.com registrant profile. Deadline to make changes to registrant information is April 2, 2017. Follow the instructions in Manage My Registration to access and edit your race bib personalization.
