WHAT IS YOUR WEATHER POLICY?

We will run Rain or Shine! If it is lightening at the time of start, then we will delay the start for a reasonable time for safety.

WHAT IS A COURSE CUTOFF TIME?

A course cutoff time is not something we "want" to have it's something we "need" and are "required" to have. Due to the strictness of county road usage and approvals on permits we have to make sure we are on and off the roads within certain time allowances. The times listed below are more than reasonable for most runners/walkers to complete the course.

5k (3.1-Miles) 8:AM Start 

Run - Cutoff 9:15 AM (1-Hour and 15 minutes)

WHAT IS NOT ALLOWED?

Baby joggers, baby strollers,skateboards, roller blades, bicycles, or any other wheeled devices are prohibited on the Bearkat Bolt course. Huntsville, TX is a hilly terrain, so for the health and safety of all participants we will not allow these items.
