Questions about registration.
Q. What is included in the registration?
A. Race, bib, photos, and finisher's medal.
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 get a refund or transfer to another race or runner?
A. Yes, you can transfer to another race or runner.
Q. Do you offer discounts?
A. Yes, please ask any PNW Ladies Running Group Ambassadors for a discount!
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 & beyond 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.
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 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 bag check?
A. No. Unless you pay for VIP.
Q. Do you offer goody bags?
A. We offer reusable bags as a registration perk *new for 2020!
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. What does "cupless" mean?
A. It means we are limiting the water stations at most of our races. Please bring your own water.
Q. Can I volunteer?
A Yes, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All volunteers get a free entry into a future race!
Our race company philosophy has always been to offer quality races for new and novices runners & walkers by keeping the races small and affordable.
