Yes! Parental participation is limited. A parent or guardian may only run in the heat with their special needs child, the 8
year heats, or the 7 & Under heats. All parents/guardians must start at the back of the corral, and are only there to support their runner in times
of need (emergency or moral support). Parents are not allowed to run directly next to their child. This is to be a safe, fair, and competitive event.
