Pre-Race Packet Pickup & Late Registration
Friday, June 13th, 5-8pm
Livonia City Hall Annex
33000 Civic Center Drive, Livonia, 48154
*Cash or check ONLY for new registrations!
*Yes, you MAY pick up packets for other participants!
-Are walkers allowed? How about jogging strollers?
Yes, absolutely! We have many walkers and runners pushing strollers! We ask that walkers, slower runners, and runners with jogging strollers please line up at the back of the pack so as not to impede faster runners.
-Can’t you start the race a little earlier? Sometimes it’s warm in June!
Unfortunately we have asked but cannot start the race earlier – the Wayne County Parks cannot close Hines Drive until 9am and we want everyone to be safe on the roads!
-Can I form a team? How do I do that?
Yes, we have several teams that run! If your team has 10 or more participants, e-mail email@example.com to set up your team. You can even choose your own team t-shirt color!
-How do the t-shirts run? What size should I get?
We are looking into higher quality shirts this year- hope to have an update soon!
-Do I have to register my child for the Free Kids’ Fun Run? What is this exactly?
No registration needed (no t-shirt though)! This is just a run around a baseball diamond (once for the littles ones, twice for the bigger ones) for little kids to participate and have fun! All kids will get a little medal at the “finish line.” Just a short, sweet, fun time for kids to have a bit of the race-day excitement.
-Are headphones/ipods/etc. allowed on the course?
Definitely! Just please be aware of your surroundings, especially because Hines Drive remains open to bikers while the race is occurring.
-Can I get a refund if I am injured, if the weather stinks, or I just don’t feel like coming?
Sorry, like most races, we cannot offer refunds unless you accidentally registered more than once. If you cannot attend, consider it good karma for supporting a great community cause.
