A number of items are not allowed on the course such as: weapons of any kind, including firearms, runners going backward, runners not wearing a bib, animals, bicycles, baby joggers, strollers, roller skates or rollerblades and any wheeled vehicles other than wheelchairs and handcycles. 

Prohibited items and actions are subject to change and course officials reserve the right to remove any runner for violations of this policy.

The HMC also discourages the use of headphones. Athletes competing for prize money are not allowed to use electronic devices such as headphones and ear pieces. If you wear headphones, please be aware of emergency vehicles, announcements and other runners along the course.
