Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are strollers and dogs allowed on the race? Sorry, our insurance and the police department do not permit strollers or dogs for safety reasons (while police will pause traffic at key intersections, it is not a closed course).

  • Can someone else use my entry? NO!  For safety reasons, we need to know exactly who is on the course. If a runner needs medical attention we use the info from the race bib to make emergency contacts. Plus, wearing another's bib can interfere with the race results. Please do not "give" your bib to others. You can, however, do a bib transfer for a fee of $10.00 before July 25. Go to "refund" section for more information.

  • My friend/spouse/child is not registered. Can he/she just run with me? NO! This is called "banditing" and is essentially using race resources without paying for them. It's also a safety issue, and even if that person doesn't take the medal or use the potties, they are still using resources they haven't paid for.  Please don't bandit races, it's just not cool.

  • I can't make it to Package Pick Up, can a friend pick up for me?  YES, if you trust them, so do we.

  • Does the race happen rain or shine?  You bet!  Unless there is a natural disaster that prevents a safe race course, there will be a race!

  • I can't race, can I get a refund? Sorry, no refunds or deferrals, even for medical issues. You can, however, do a bib exchange to another person for a fee of $10.00, but it must be done by July 26th. Login to your account and go to "participant management."
