more information from RRCA on the policy Following guidelines from the Road Runners of Clubs of America (RRCA), Pikes Peak Road Runners discourages and in most cases, does not allow use of headphones in its races. The rationale for this is simple: the majority of our races are held on trails, which are crowded with many other runners (and sometimes other trail users). Maintaining one’s sensory capacity during such situations is paramount for the safety of all participants.
The Kids Fall Series is a series of four races in four different city and county parks. There are 5 separate divisions of progressively increasing length, as follows. Ages 0-3 25-50 yards Ages 4-5 .25 mile - 600 yards Ages 6-8 600 yards - .75 mile Ages 9-11 .75 - 1.5 miles 12 and up 1.5 miles - 3 miles The age groupings are suggestions only. Each kid can run whatever distance they feel comfortable with. This is a trail series and may include such things as hay bales, rocks, water, and other obstructions. Each child receives a ribbon after each race. A special item is also distributed to each child after the races in Palmer Park. Please, no dogs or baby strollers allowed on the course. Please do not trespass onto private property. Per PPRR race rules, headphones, i-pods, or MP3 players may not be used during the race. Those not in compliance will be disqualified.
