Questions about registration.
Q. Is there DAY OF Registration?
A. Yes, please note, there is a $10 additional day of fee
Q. What's included in the FREE Kids registration?
A. Kids 14 and under are free to join the run/walk. However, this registration does NOT include a drink or medal. Please purchase a run or walk entry to include a drink and medal.
Q. Can I get a refund or transfer to another race/runner?
A. Yes, you can transfer to another race or runner.
Q. What is a virtual 5k?
A. A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. We will mail you your medal when we receive them.
DO NOT SHOW UP TO THE EVENT. A virtual race does not provide you with a day of registration.
Q. Can I transfer to a virtual race or vice versa?
A. See transfer policy
Q. What if I'm running late?
A. You can start the run/walk on your own and pick up your packet AFTER you complete the run/walk.
Q. I couldn't make it to the event, can I get my medal and bib mailed to me?
A. No, you must attend the event to receive medal/bib. See transfer policy.
Q. Does everyone get a finisher's medal?
A. Please stay up to date on our race medal deadline. Each race will have a deadline to receive finisher's medals (typically 4-6 weeks prior to the race). After this date, we will no longer be guaranteeing medals.
Our 2020 goal is to produce less and waste less. If you really want a medal, register ahead of time as we will not be ordering extra medals. After this date, we'll be using the medal fee and donating it towards the race-specific charity, our running group, and/or our gofundme fundraiser. Thank you for understanding.
Q. Why do I need to order a guaranteed medal so far in advance for the race?
A. Our supplier requires orders a minimum of 4-6 weeks prior to the race date. Our 2020 is to waste less - which means we are only ordering for those that truly want a medal and not ordering extras. Please check the race deadlines for guaranteed medals (posted on the Facebook event page). Thank you for understanding.
