Safety Guidelines

Be Safe:
We are traveling through cities, small town and rural areas. While the route was designed to encompass as many sidewalks as possible know there will be extensive areas where sidewalks will not be present. This is an open course and police will not be present at intersections.  Runners must follow all traffic and pedestrian laws.  Your safety is imperative to having a successful event. When on the shoulder, stay on the side of the road facing traffic; remain alert and follow all safety rules.

Be Aware Of Your Surroundings:
There may be police presence in some areas but with teams spread out we can’t make any guarantees. Check before crossing streets. Stay in cross walks and when available use crosswalk lights. Make eye contact with drivers and use hand gestures to ensure they see you and know you are crossing.

Conduct:
The 9/11 Promise Run is a run to benefit the victims, their families and the emergency personnel of 9/11. Please know you are representing all of the runners participating and the charities involved. Respect the surrounding environment, display courtesy and good taste. Please carry all trash and recyclables with you and dispose of appropriately.

Vans:
Please do not follow runners. This can cause traffic problems and possibly endanger a runner. If you would like to cheer on your runner, pull ahead and wait safely off the roadway.

Switching Runners:
When switching runners do so safely off the road, preferably in a parking lot.

Runner Requirements:
While running you must wear a reflective vest. Run against traffic when a sidewalk is available.

HAVE FUN!

While the run is to remember 9/11, new memories will be made and friendships forged. Have fun, take in the moment and talk to others about your journey you encounter. You are a part an amazing adventure for a great cause, much bigger than us. Embrace what you’re doing and know your time and commitment is valued more than words can describe.
