  • Are strollers and dogs allowed on the race? Sorry the course does not permit strollers or dogs for safety reasons.
  • 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.
  • 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 food or use the potties, we have allocated race resources and volunteers for a specific amount of runners on race day. 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 transfers. You can defer your entry to the 2018 race for a $10 fee. Log into your account at the race registration site to make a deferal.
