The Salem Half Marathon & 8K adheres to USATF's Competition Rules for Long Distance Running. The complete Rule Book may be found here: https://www.usatf.org/governance/rule-books. Most rules that apply to LDR can be found on pages 140-144.
A few rules to note:
Rule 241, 2.f. A competitor who collects refreshment from a place other than a refreshment station is liable to disqualification by the Referee. NOTE: A competitor may receive from or pass to another competitor refreshment, water or sponges provided it was carried from the start or collected or received at an official station. However, any continuous support from a competitor to one or more others in such a way may be regarded as unfair assistance and warnings and/or disqualifications as outlined above may be applied.
Rule 144, 4.f Pace setting by an officially designated person entered in an event for that purpose is permitted, provided such pacesetters start in the event.
Rule 144, 8 A competitor may, at any time, carry water or refreshment by hand or attached to his/her body provided it was carried from the start or collected or received at an official station.
USATF does not allow strollers
USATF does allow portable listening devices, provided they are not capable of receiving communication. However, the Salem Half Marathon strongly discourages the use of portable listening devices for your safety and the safety of those around you.
