​Questions about the race course

Q.  Where is the race?​

A.  Meet at Loft Coffee Bar, Everett.  Start at Everett Ave/Grand Ave, go North for 1.5'ish miles, turnaround and return to Start.

Q.  Are the roads closed for the race?
A.  No, the course is not closed.  It is an "urban" race and you should abide by all traffic rules.

Q.  Is the race timed?
A.  Yes, but please remember that this is a FUN run/walk.  It is not chipped, but we do have a timing system.

Q. Are strollers/dogs allowed?
A. Yes, but please note that the path narrows on parts of the course. Please line up in the back upon starting the race. No charge for babies in strollers (but they won't get a medal unless you purchase a paid entry).

Q. Is it ok to walk if I've chosen the run/walk option?
A. Yes, of course!

Q. Can I wear headphones?
​A. We would prefer that you do not wear headphones for safety reasons.

Q.  What does "cupless" mean?

Q. What is a virtual race?
A. A Virtual 5K (or any other virtual race) is a race that you choose to complete where ever you would like. You can walk, run, use a treadmill, or participate in another race. The beauty of a virtual 5K race is that you can run the race at your pace wherever you choose. Do not show up to the race on race day, unfortunately, you will not be able to get your medal/bib. All bibs/medals will be mailed AFTER the race.

Q.  Can I get a refund or transfer to another race or runner?
A.  Sorry, no refunds or transfers are available.​

​Q.  Can I transfer to a virtual race since I can no longer make on the day of the race or vice versa?
A.  Sorry, no transfers.  
Medal questions
Q. How does the plant-a-tree registration fee work?
A. You pay "less" and opt out of receiving a medal. We donate on your behalf to plant a tree.

Q. If I paid for a medal, when do I get it?
A. We are eliminating points of contact and giving you the medal when you pick up your packet. This also helps us give those that paid for the medal - the medal; and those that opted out, not to accidentally get one.

Q. I didn't pay for a medal, but now want one.
A. You can check with us at the end of the race to see if we have any leftovers.

Q.  I couldn't make it to the race, can I pick up my medal or have it mailed to me?
A.  Sorry, but the medals are "finisher's" medals.  You must be present.

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 2 weeks prior to the race). After this date, we will no longer be guaranteeing medals.​

Q. Where can I park?
A. Please arrive early to find street parking.

​Q.  Is there bag check?
