Where do I pick up my bib and shirt?

Beat the race day rush and pick up your materials in advance of the race! All registered participants will receive a bib, tshirt, and goodie bag. If you can’t make it to any of the Expo days, don’t fret; you’re welcome to send a friend or family member to 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 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 6,000 of our friends.

Are dogs allowed?

While we love our four-legged friends, due to the size of the event, dogs are not allowed. Please leave them at home race morning.

What if it rains?

Our event is rain or shine.

Do you offer any refunds? Can I transfer my registration?

Unfortunately, your registration is non-refundable.

I can't attend in person. What do virtual runners receive?
