Restrictions and the usual common sense rules

This is a large, serious competitive athletic event.

Absolutely no baby joggers, in-line skates or unauthorized bikes will be tolerated on the course during the event. This is a matter of grave public safety. Violators will not be allowed to proceed in the race.

If you compete wearing headphones and place for prize money, you may be disqualified subject to rules by USATF.

This is in compliance with national rules of USATF, which is the sanctioning authority of the James Joyce Ramble 10 km.

No dogs are allowed on the Endicott Estate grounds per order of the town of Dedham for liability reasons. We love dogs, but not in large crowds of people. Sorry.  

The lover of dogs race director is available to dog-sit though not on Ramble weekend.
