My kids would like to volunteer. Is there an age requirement?
For safety reasons, most of our volunteer positions have an age requirement of 18 years. We have a limited number or opportunities that may fit for some volunteers who are 15 years old or older. If you have kids who are at least 15 years old and interested in volunteering, please have them register online and our volunteer coordinator will be in touch with a volunteer assignment. If you have questions about volunteering please contact us at chadhero@hitchcock.org or (603) 308-2236.

Where can I keep my personal belongings while I run/walk?
For security reasons bags may not be left unattended at the event. We do provide a staffed bag drop off location for participants' convenience. Please provide your own clear, waterproof bag and make sure your bag is clearly labeled with your name and contact information. While this area is staffed with excellent volunteers, all participants leave their belongings at their own risk.

Will there be medical support on the course?
Yes. While we hope that you will not need these services, your safety is important to us. Emergency medical support will be available at the medical tent near the finish line with emergency transportation on standby, as well as EMTs on bicycles along the entire half marathon course.

Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are not permitted on the race course. Dogs are permitted on the Dartmouth Green and around Downtown Hanover. Please follow local leash laws.
