Finn is an honorable Irish Warrior and yes there are rules to follow in an event graced with his name. Here they are:
- All participants must be 14 years old or older
- All participants must sign a legal waiver and acknowledge that they know they could be injured during the event.
- Instructions from the race director and staff must be followed or participants will be disqualified.
If you are a serious athlete your best approach is to cross train with road runs, trail runs, and weight lifting. If you are more into the social benefits of the event, the classic Guinness and chicken wing diet should do you just fine. Just remember, you will sign a waiver before the starting gun goes off just incase you take this suggestion too seriously.
The Lil Fini Kids Race will be a mini obstacle race for kids ages 4 - 13 on the day of the race. Kids will be finishing through the same mud pit and the same finish line as the Finn McCool race. More details to come.
