There will be an aid station out on the course at the 1.5 mile mark. Water will be provided at the aid stations.
The Cook Park trails are shared by runners, cyclists and rollerbladers. We ask that you only run 2 abreast, call out when you are about to pass someone ("Passing on the right"), and only pass on the right hand side. No littering please.
The flush toilet facilities of the park will be open near the start/finish. There are no restrooms on the course.
