HEADPHONES:
The Integreon International Charity Challenge requests that participants refrain from the use of headphones of any type on the event courses. The request is for not only the safety of the participant, but also spectators and volunteers.

To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, the Integreon International Charity Challenge encourages a headphone-free environment during the race.  We believe your race experience and those around you will be greatly enhanced by leaving the headphones at home or in the car. Running headphone-free allows opportunities to develop camaraderie with your fellow runners and to enjoy everything the race has to offer.

Volunteers and spectators will be on course cheering you on and providing directions to help get you to the finish line. Runner safety is a top priority for our event. Please be mindful of the other participants and respect the race personnel to ensure a safe and enjoyable race for everyone.

If there is more than a reasonable delay, or if conditions persist, race officials reserve the right to shorten or reschedule the race. Entry fees are non-refundable.
