Cash or check ONLY for new registrations!

Yes, you MAY pick up packets for others! 

Are strollers allowed?
Yes, absolutely! We have many walkers and runners pushing strollers! We ask that runners with jogging strollers please line up at the back of the pack so as not to impede faster runners.

Can I form a team? How do I do that?

Yes!  Note your team name and t-shirt color on the registration form.  Register teams by May 22.

Are pets allowed?

Pets are not allowed on the course.  With several hundred runners the safety of pets cannot be guaranteed.

 How do the t-shirts run? What size should I get?

T-shirts are good quality and true-to-size.

 Do I have to register my child for the Free Kids’ Fun Run? What is this exactly?

No registration is necessary.  The Kids’ Fun Run is 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, but always be aware of your surroundings.

 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, refunds are not available unless you accidentally register more than once.


Thank you for your support for a great cause; the registration fee goes straight to substance abuse prevention events!
