Do not fiddle with your tearaway until
you cross the finish line.
Runners who have finished, do not go back
and run towards the finish line again. Do not get to within 50
yards of the finish line. You can encourage your friends,
without making the timers job harder.
Stay in single file line through the
chute, no passing, no going out.
