SAFETY AND COURSE ETIQUETTE: Aid and water stations will be provided at the finish line. Because you will be running on campus roads at dark, the use of headphones are discouraged and participants do so at their own risk. Bicycles, roller blades, and pets are prohibited. Note: because this is an open course, there may be traffic on the roads. Campus police may also monitor the course.
COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS: We recommend that all registrants and race attendees / volunteers wear masks while participating in games or awaiting race finishers, and maintain a six-foot social distance from others at all times. We also ask that all participants maintain a 6-foot stance between each group or "pod" in line at the registration/ giveaway table(s). We reserve the right to postpone / cancel the race, or change all registrations to a virtual run, should government guidelines recommend no gatherings of the estimated size of the Moonlight Mile per the date of the race.
