Frequently Asked Questions

All participants that were already registered for the 2020/2021 event have been automatically registered for the 2022 event!

If you’d like to take a moment to verify your registration and/or family registrations, click on Find a Participant. From there, you can see that you are registered.  In addition, you can choose to “claim your account” by following the prompts through.  (Please note, you do not need to claim your account, you can just show up on race day, this is just if you wish to edit your tshirt size, change your address, etc.)

Beat the race day rush and pick up your materials in advance of the race! All registered participants will receive a bib, t-shirt, and goodie bag. If you can’t make it to the Packet Pick Up, don’t fret; you’re welcome to send a friend or family member to the Expo to pick up your race day necessities – as long as they come armed with a copy of everyone’s ID and waiver.

Due to the size of our event, strollers are ONLY allowed under the following conditions:

  1. Running with strollers is NOT allowed in the 5K. Only walking with a stroller.
  2. Strollers in the 5K MUST line up in the final two waves, on the right hand side. Anyone who is in an earlier corral will be called out by the announcer.
  3. Strollers do not fit through the starting gate. You will need to go around the gate to the right.
  4. If you have a little one along for the ride, they do not need to be registered unless you want them to receive a shirt and medal.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation. The policies are in place to ensure the best and safest experience for all participants

While we love our four-legged friends, dogs are not allowed due to the size of the event and running thru the Arboretum (where peacocks and other wildlife live). Please leave them at home race morning.

The event takes place rain or shine!

Unfortunately, your registration is non-refundable.

If you can’t make the race but still want to participate, you can register as a virtual runner and receive an event t-shirt and medal. Registered virtual runners will receive their items in the mail, 1-2 weeks after the event.
