Questions about registration:
Q. What is included in the registration?
A. First 200 get race, bib, photos, finisher's medals, AND buff AND glasses! 201+ get race, bib, photos, and finisher's medal.
Q. I signed up early (first 200), how do I redeem my buff and glasses?
A. Please pick up your buff and glasses at registration/packet pickup.
Q. I missed out and didn't register early (didn't register in time for the buff and glasses), can I still purchase)?
A. There will be limited availability for any unclaimed merchandise for a nominal fee.
Q. What comes with the kid's entry?
A. The kid's entry includes everything an adult entry would include, but at a lesser charge. Please only register for the kid's entry if the kid is 10 and under. The kid's entry will be listed under the person who purchased the registration (their name). If your child does not need a medal or bib, you do not need to register them.
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.
Q. Can I get a refund or transfer to another race?
A. Sorry no refunds. If you'd like to transfer to another race, please email us to pay the $10 transfer fee (you can also transfer to another individual).
Q. Do you offer discounts?
A. Yes, please ask any PNW Ladies Running Group Ambassadors for a discount!
Questions about the race:
Q. Do I need to dress up?
A. No. But if you happen to have a Waldo costume in your closet, wear it!
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 the course hilly?
A. Trail is fairly flat, rain or shine! The trail is open to the public- please abide by park rules.
Q. Is there a water station?
A. Yes, we will have a water station halfway through the course.
Q. Is it ok to walk if I've chosen the run/walk option?
A. Yes, of course!
Q. Is this a timed course?
A. Yes, we will have extra medals for top four male and female finishers since this is a RRCA Championship 5k!
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. Where can I park?
A. Please arrive early to find street parking.
Q. Can I wear headphones?
A. We would prefer that you do not wear headphones for safety reasons.
Q. Is there gear check?
Q. Can I bring my dog?
A. Yes, but please be courteous to other runners and line up in the back. Also, don't forget to pick up after your pet.
Q. Can I volunteer?
A Yes, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All volunteers get a free entry into a future race!
