St. James Wheelchair Rules
It should be noted that the event’s course topography and traffic control plan make this event
particularly challenging for athletes in general, and disabled athletes in particular. The race route
includes several areas with long uphill and downhill sections with uneven road surfaces.

It is imperative for all participants to complete the event within the designated running lanes, and within closure times, One and One-Half (1.5) hours in the 5K (3.1 miles) race.

Participants not maintaining the pace to finish within these times will be directed to move onto the sidewalk by race officials and the finish line will not remain open beyond these finishing times.

In order to provide for participant, volunteer and spectator safety, the following rules will apply to disabled athletes who wish to participate in these events using self-propelled wheelchairs.

1. All self-propelled wheelchair athletes must wear a protective helmet. Only helmets that are ANSI, CEN, ASTM, CPSC, Australian, Canadian or SNELL certified, without modification, will be accepted. The helmet must be worn for the duration of the race with the chin-strap fastened.

2. All wheelchairs must be structurally sound (i.e., no cracks in the frame or welds, no loose or missing spokes, etc.). The athlete must be securely seated in the wheelchair and remain so
while racing.

3. Because of the nature of the race course, with many sharp turns, only rigid-frame wheelchairs
will be permitted. Self-propelled wheelchairs that are collapsible (‘hospital-style’) will not be allowed to participate in the event.

4. All wheelchair athletes competing in the event must check-in with the Start Line Coordinator with the wheelchair they will use in the race no later than one hour before the start of the race on the morning of the event to ensure that the chair meets the event safety requirements. The decision of the Start Line Coordinator is final.

5. In accordance with International Paralympic Committee (IPC) rules, hand-cycles, hand-bikes, hand-cranks, or other gear- or lever- driven devices will NOT be permitted in the event.

6. All wheelchair participants must be able to maintain control of their wheelchair at all times. Race officials may immediately and without warning disqualify from the event and remove from the course, any participant whose racing style is considered by such official to be dangerous, to interfere with other participants, or to fail to yield the right of way to other participants or volunteers.

7. Strollers or baby-joggers with children are allowed in the 5K event. Strollers and baby-joggers must start at the back of the field and must yield right of way to other participants.

8. Disabled participants in a wheelchair who are being pushed by an able-bodied participant must both be officially registered, and must start at the back of the field. Disabled participants in a wheelchair being pushed by an able bodied participant are urged to wear a protective helmet and must at all times yield the right of way to other participants
