HOw long do I have to finish the race? Can I walk?
The cutoff for our half marathons is 4 hours and 1 hour for our 5Ks, giving walkers plenty of time at a 19 minute per mile pace.
Are strollers allowed?
Strollers are welcome at some of our races, with the exception of the trail races, so long as you’re courteous to our other runners.
Please familiarize yourself with the race course and make sure you would be comfortable using a stroller. Be sure to check the FAQ page of your race’s website to see if strollers are allowed for your race.
Are dogs allowed?
Unfortunately our event insurance does not cover dogs on the course. However, they are welcome at the expo and the finish line.
When will my bib arrive?
Mailed bibs will be sent priority about 2 weeks prior to the race. You should have your bib about week before race day.
Where should I stay?
You can find lodging suggestions on the race website under the Travel page, or by doing a Google Maps search for lodging near the area. The lodging options on our website do not offer a shuttle from that location to the start line - runners will be responsible for getting themselves to the shuttle pick up location.
Can someone else pick up my bib?
Yes, someone else can pick up your bib as long as they have a copy of your ID (like a picture on a phone).
Can we register as a team?
Absolutely you can! For details visit the Team Registration page for each race.
I can't make it to the race. What are my options?
