ADDITIONAL RACE DETAILS

 

IMPORTANT PARKING CHANGE TO ALL RUNNERS, GORUCKERS, WALKERS, VOLUNTEERS, & SPECTATORS – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

 

To All Runners, GORUCKERS, walkers, volunteers, and spectators of the Doylestown 911 Heroes Run:  due to the extremely wet conditions of the parking grounds/fields at Fonthill Park, we have made arrangements to make your parking experience far easier for Sunday, Sept. 23rd.  All participants in the 5k, GORUCK, and fun run, as well as all spectators, volunteers and other participants, are asked to park at the Bucks County Parking Garage (near the Doylestown Courthouse – entrance on Broad Street in Doylestown).  From the parking garage, a shuttle bus will transport you to Fonthill Park.  The buses will run from 9am to 12:45pm on Sunday and then will start up again at 2:30pm.  The bus pickup location will be at the Union Street exit of the garage.  Note that the Bucks County parking garage is approximately within a 1-mile walking distance of Fonthill Park if you choose to walk.  As an alternative, parking will be available at the Acme Shopping Center (Main & East St.) and is also about an easy mile walk to Fonthill Park. ONLY SPONSORS, WHEELED AND HANDICAPPED PARTICIPANTS WILL BE PERMITTED TO PARK AT FONTHILL PARK AS SPACE WILL BE VERY LIMITED. Carpooling is strongly suggested. ALL OTHERS WILL BE DIRECTED TO THE PARKING GARAGE. Please do not attempt to park on the surrounding local streets or run course as this will cause both safety and traffic hazards and will delay the start of the event. If you are planning to register for the run on race day, please note that registration will CLOSE AT 12:30pm so please plan on arriving early and taking parking/travel time into account.  We look forward to our opening ceremony this year where we are honored to host guest speaker, Rob Jones.  This will start promptly at 1pm.  You will not want to miss him!

 

Thank you for your cooperation!

Pre-Registration:  for those who have already pre-registered for the 5k/GORUCK or fun run/walk event, you still need to check in, collect your bib, etc. at either the Expo on Saturday or on race day until 12:30pm.  Due to the large crowds it is strongly suggested that you collect your items at the Expo on Saturday.

Course Note – 5k/GORUCK: For those that are running/walking the 5k/GORUCK course, please note that portions of the route will open one hour after the start time to allow traffic to move through Doylestown. If you still are on the course after one hour, we ask you to finish up on the sidewalk. This is a safety request from the Central Bucks Regional Police Department as a condition of our race permit approval. Racecourse workers will remain on the run course to help ensure your safety, however, please be aware that, after one hour, traffic will resume on portions of the course.

 

 

 

Important Note – GORUCK AWARDS DIVISION: Please read below

 

Hey there GORUCK Division! We are thrilled you are coming out to ruck the 9/11 Heroes Run in Doylestown, PA! Race day is just a few days away and we wanted to provide you with some information to help logistics run smoothly. This is our very first year having a GORUCK division and we have learned a few things from previous races. As such we have decided to weigh all rucker's packs or gear who want to qualify for a medal. Please see details below:

 

MEDALS:  Medals will be given to the top 3 overall male and female GORUCK finishers. There will be no separate age brackets in the GORUCK division. Anyone wanting to compete for a medal in the GORUCK Division will need to meet the weight standard outlined below. Rucks or gear will be weighed before the event begins.

 

THE STANDARD: The additional weight you carry makes it rucking. To qualify for the competitive division you must: Carry a 10 LB weight if you weigh less than 150 pounds. Carry a 20 LB weight if you weigh more than 150 pounds.

 

WEIGH IN: Weigh in will begin at 11am at the GORUCK tent. Ruck sacks will be weighed dry- water will not count toward your weight. You will receive a bracelet and a special mark on your bib showing that your ruck or gear has met the standard.

 

WHAT CAN I CARRY: You can carry a ruck sack with bricks, a dumbbell, a sand bag or a weight plate.  Weight vests as well as Fire Fighter's gear also qualify for the GORUCK division

 

WHOA- I THOUGHT THERE WAS NO MINIMUM! I DON'T WANT TO CARRY THAT MUCH! No problem! You do NOT have to compete for a medal! Come out and ruck your yoga block, or just some water. Skip the weigh in and just have fun!

 

A SPECIAL NOTE FOR HARD CHARGERS: If you decide to carry more weight than the standard required,  please remember that the standard for this event is 10 pounds and 20 pounds. We will not have different weight levels! If you decide to carry 50 pounds, you may lose a medal to someone carrying 10 pounds. If you are in this for the medal, work smarter not harder!

 

Post medal ceremony tantrums will not be tolerated! PATCH REMINDER: Please remember, you will be receiving your patch in the mail, not in person on race day!!! Patches have been mailed out in order of registration. As of 9/18 patches for registrations received through 9/6 have all been mailed. The next round of patches will be mailed before the end of September.
