Participants can stay on the course and proceed as pedestrians but the roads need to be reopened to traffic. It's always a good idea to carry your own fluids as well as a map of the course, since mile markers and other course signs may be taken down while you're still on the course. Some of the race amenities may not be available once the race is officially finished. We make every effort to keep the race course amenities and finish line open until the final runner crosses the line.  However, it is difficult ensure all finish line festivities will be available.
