​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 pin when we receive them.  DO NOT SHOW UP TO THE EVENT.  A virtual race does not provide you with a day of registration.

Q.  Is there DAY OF Registration?
​A.  We welcome new participants! See specific race date for details on registration times on race day.  Cash or credit cards are all accepted. Please note, that there is a $10 race day fee.

​​Q.  You canceled, can I get a refund?
A.  In an effort to promote the health of our participants, we will not issue refunds in cases of severe weather (heat or cold), smoke, or pandemic, etc. If we are forced to cancel the event due to unsafe running conditions our goal is to reschedule the date of the race. If this is not possible we intend to host a virtual event and mail participants their race packets. As per our waiver, "I understand that this event does not provide refunds in the event of cancellation, and by signing this waiver, I consent that I am not entitled to a refund if the event is canceled before or during the event."
