Trail Markers
The course on trails will be marked with orange signs and ties with reflective tape to help mark the course. Signs with arrows will be used to show which way to run and ties will let you know you're going the right way. On roads, we use bright orange sticker arrows that are not reflective. Pay careful attention on the roads/sidewalks. 

Although the course will be adequately marked, runners will be required to carry their phone on them at all times AND have the course map saved, printed or on tab.
