Q: Is there a time limit?
A: We want all Goddesses to have the opportunity to be successful, so we are keeping the routes open for several hours. We may have to move some Goddesses to the sidewalk and ask you obey traffic laws as roads open, but we will still have support on the course.

Q: Are strollers or dogs allowed?
A: For safety purposes, dogs, skateboards, wagons, in-line skates, scooters, roller skis, bicycles and vehicles are not permitted on route.
