Can I use a stroller on the course?
Strollers may be used during the race but must be dropped off at Dock 3 on the backside of the stadium prior to entering the ballpark to finish the race. Strollers will not be allowed at the finish line. Reds security staff will be on-hand to transport strollers from the drop-off area to the stroller pick-up area in the post-race party. Please note that any children riding in a stroller will need to be registered in order to receive a race shirt and medal.
