Questions about registration
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).
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. Yes, you can transfer to another race or runner.
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. See transfer policy.
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 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. 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. Where will race results and photos be posted?
A. Links will be posted on our main Facebook page: www.Facebook.com/Run2BeFit
Q. Can I pick up packets for others?
A. Yes! However, you cannot pick up a medal for anyone who did not attend the race.
Q. Who does this race benefit?
A. "On behalf of our patients and families, thank you for considering donating to Seattle Children’s Hospital. Your donation of toys, gift cards and other items help patients and families when they need it most." Please bring items to donate at the Wizards 5k or donate directly to SCH online. Bring an extra item for more raffle tickets. Thank you.
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 goal is to offer quality races for new and novices runners & walkers - come back to our monthly races or our annual races!
