Spectators Distance running is inherently a poor spectator sport. Unfortunately, that’s compounded by the relative inaccessibility of the D&L Trail for much of the race. The quiet, natural surroundings that our runners and walkers will enjoy means there are few roads near much of the course. And there is no parking on private property.
Many of the parking areas have limited capacity. Please estimate when the racers(s) you are following will be at each spectator point and try to coincide your viewing with their arrival. Please avoid parking in a single area for more than 10 minutes if possible. We want as many people as possible to be able to cheer on their racers!
