The Memphis Police Department, along with other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, will be present during all marathon weekend events to provide an enhanced level of security to athletes, spectators, staff and volunteers. Please be sure to follow all safety procedures, and, as with all public events, if you see something, say something.
The following are strictly prohibited on the course to ensure runner safety and comply with liability insurance requirements:
- unregistered runners
- unauthorized vehicles
- in-line or roller skates
- baby joggers or strollers (except the kids marathon)
- all animals
Any type of unauthorized support or pacing will not be allowed, including, but not limited to, support from a vehicle (fluid bottles, splits, etc.), as such support will be considered an unfair advantage. Noncompliance will result in immediate disqualification.
