A unisex adult or youth size T-Shirt and Bib are included with your registration fee. To ensure you receive the T-Shirt size you ordered, please register by Friday, September 9th. We will do our best to provide you with the T-Shirt size you ordered or a similar size, however, this is not guaranteed after September 9th. 



Race registration bags will have typical race/sponsor promotional items, ostomy education materials, and most importantly an ostomy pouch provided by Exclusive Diamond Sponsor Hollister. We encourage non-ostomate participants to put on the pouch for the race to improve awareness and empathy for the challenges faced by people living with ostomies. 



Once you’ve registered you also have the option to CREATE a new RACE GROUP/TEAM or to JOIN one that’s already been established. This is a great way to get others in your community to Register to Participate in the Run and compete against each other. Invite family, friends, co-workers to Register, pick to be on your Race Group/Team (or start their own), order their T-Shirt & Bib and celebrate the day with you! (Please note this is NOT a Team Fundraiser. To set up a Personal or Team Fundraiser, please go to the DONATE link.)
