Course Rules and Regulations

The most important rule is to have fun!

This is an out and back course so we kindly ask all walkers and participants with dogs and strollers to stay to the right. Walkers and those with dogs and strollers should start at the end of the pack to allow runners a clear field and minimize collisions.

Please respect your fellow runners and volunteers and do not turn around early or cut in the course as this will cause problems at the end with the timers and delay the results.

All runners, walkers, trotters must be registered and wear a bib. No BANDITS please! “Banditting” is running a race without registering. This is a fundraising event and the proceeds are used to support Sparta Schools.


Below is a list of available parking lots on race day. Please pay attention to posted signs and do not park where prohibited.

  • Lake Mohawk Country Club parking lot on West Shore Trail
  • Mohawk Avenue School at 18 Mohawk Ave
