Strollers are welcome. However, please be aware that almost the entire course is packed dirt/gravel vineyard roads. They're super smooth by trail running standards, but definitely not as smooth as a sidewalk or asphalt road. The roads are reasonably wide enough for cars and trucks to work the vineyards, but please careful and courteous since you'll be a larger profile on the course. It would be best to start towards the back of the pack so that you don't inadvertently block speedier runners.
