1. Pay for the Race
Entering to a race without paying also called “banditing” is not fair to race organizer, volunteers and especially to those who paid.
If you’re running with friends or a group, try not to take the whole road so that other runners and faster runners can pass through.
4. Line up properly
Faster runners should line up at the front of the starting line, slower runners and walkers at the back. Some races have corrals based on estimated pace or post pace signs. If not, ask runners nearby about their anticipated pace; if it's faster than yours, move further back. Most races use timing chips, so the time it takes you to reach the starting line won't count in your final net time.
5. Be careful at Water Station
Water stations can get chaotic and crowded. Use caution when running into a water station and make sure you're not cutting off other runners or spilling water on them. Don't go to the first table at the water stop. That's where all the rookies stop and if it's a big race, it's going to very congested. Keep running to one of the tables farther down.
6. Show Appreciation to Volunteers
Race will not be successful without the help of the volunteers. Say "Thank you" when they hand you water or sport drink.
7. Keep Moving at the Finish Line
Don't immediately stop at the finish line or in the chute. There will be runners coming in right behind you, so keep going until it is safe to stop.
8. No Spitting and Snotrocketing
You know spitting can spreads disease. Please be cautious before doing so. Look around before launching your rocket.
9. Thanks your Supporters
Don't forget to thank your supporters that cheering for you. Acknowledge when they greet you. If you're to tired to say "thanks", wave, nod or simple smile to them.
10. No Cheating
Don't cheat on the race. You only fooled yourself not your fellow runners.
