FAQs *there are general changes to 2021 due to covid-19.
Questions about registration.
Q. Is there DAY OF Registration? *no day of registration available.
A. Yes, please note, there is a $10 additional day of fee.
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. 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. Sorry, no transfers.
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 2021 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. 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.
