*All courses are very well marked.  There are mile markers for each distance event, directional signs for course splits and TURNAROUND signs for course turnarounds.  Course splits and course turnarounds will be manned with an operations staff member who will typically be making announcements on a megaphone.  Course turns are indicated with traffic cones and usually (not always) have police units, volunteers and/or staff members.  Traffic on courses is managed by our law enforcement partners, but no roads are promised to be closed to all traffic.  Runners should be aware of their surroundings: the course, applicable signage, vehicles, staff, volunteers, and police officers.
