Active Duty Military runners, please email Harvey for a sign up code.
 
Refunds and Bib Exchanges: It’s just not practical to process refunds or bib exchanges. If you decide to withdraw from the race please email Harvey and your entry fee will be donated to the State and County parks instead of buying more stuff for the aid stations.

The Seneca Greenway Trail Race has grown to the point where we need to make some changes to avoid bothering the neighbors. We've outgrown the parking at Riley's Lock so starting this year the start will be at Riley's Lock and the parking, finish, and picnic will be at Damascus Regional Park.
 
50k Distance Timing:
 
1. The white pull tab at the bottom of the bibs will be used to determine which runners have run the 50K distance. If you get to the finish without the pull tab or if the pull tab has not been marked, you will be timed for the Marathon. If you get to the finish and don't have a bib or pull tab, you will be timed for the Marathon.
 
2. The bib with the pull tab must be accessible at Clopper Lake for marking.
 
3. 50K Runners must report in at the Clopper Lake aid station to get their bib pull tabs marked.
 
4. The bib and the pull tab must be accessible at the finish so that a time can collect your pull tab.
 
Announcements:
 
Picnic: Again as the numbers are growing and if you have the urge feel free to bring a dish to the picnic.
 
Photos and Reports: We can use photos and reports. All that is asked is that you identify the photographer so we can give credit and give permission for free use of the photos. No one associated with the race charges for photos. We just want them to be free for the runners and sponsors and park authorities.
 
Transportation: The race has bus and volunteer transportation service. Runners can go to the finish and get a ride to the start. Runners can go directly to the start but the race will not be providing transportation back to the start when the race is over.
 
Bag Drops: We will do one set of drops, meaning you can put your belongings in a white kitchen trash bag, put your name on it with a magic marker and we will take it to the finish area - At YOUR OWN RISK -. Please do not ask volunteers to take your drops anywhere else. Also please, please, please take your stuff with you at the end of the day. I do not want your old gloves and I have enough shirts. In fact I might be wearing one of your shirts now. I know you will be brain dead at the end try to remember to take your things with you.
 
Water bottles: Remember the water bottle rule. Volunteers will have water and Gatorade probably every five to seven miles. The aide stations do not have paper cups. It is not that kind of race.
 
Safety: Remember runners are expected to stop at road crossings. Volunteers will be there but they absolutely will not stop cars.
