Frequently Asked Questions
Can We Run As Teams?
Of course! You are encouraged to run in groups. The MLK Dream Run is a wonderful opportunity to build comradery and promote health and wellness with people you work with, your friends & or family.
Can We Run With Baby Strollers and or Pets?
We will not be able to accommodate baby strollers or pets on the courses due to the complexities of the route having a variety of merging sections that would make this unsafe. Thank you for your understanding.
Can We Run With IPods?
Yes– make sure you keep them low enough for you to hear Emergency Vehicles & Autos.
Are The 10K & 15K Course Distances USATF Certified?
As of 7/27/12, due to late breaking complications with the city permit and issues with police resources, the run is required to be a "side walk" run instead of being run on closed streets. Therefore the run lenghts are no longer certified since we'll be running on the side walks instead of the streets themselves. For the start of the run, Alberta Ave will be closed to traffic and fully utilized by the runners to allow the start pack to leave the start line and spread out as the jack rabbit starters get out in front and the even-pacer runners fall into line.
Where Is There Parking Near the Start?
Please see the list of Parking Locations on the this web site under the menu RACES/DAY OF.
Where Are The Rest Room Facilities?
There will be many "Honey Bucket" rest rooms at the start and also placed at various locations around the course. Please see the staff at the Packet Pickup area for directions to the ADA restroom at th start/finish line.
