To safely navigate the TPC golf course sections of the scenic course that are in the dark, we require our 10k & HALF runners & walkers to have some sort of lighted device to assist them. The illuminated cart paths are for directional purposes only and not enough to light up the entire path since it’s such an expansive area. If you forget your running headlamp, we will have a limited number for sale at a nominal cost to help keep you safe out there. We appreciate y'all thinking SAFETY FIRST.
