Refunds will not be issued for any no-shows, emergencies or any other reason if the participant was not able to attend. All registration items must be picked up by race day by the participant or by someone else the participant sends to receive items. Finisher medals are available on race day only and will be offered at the finish line of the 5K. Medals will not be given after the event is complete.

The course time limit for the 5K (3.1 miles) is 1 hour and 15 minutes.

I woke up late on race day, there was traffic, parking was far away..... can I start the race late?

Yep, we understand life happens but please set your alarm and be on time. The 5K will start on time (weather permitting) promptly at 8:15am, the start line will be open for 10 minutes and will close at 8:25am. Participants who arrive to the start line after 8:25am will not be allowed onto the course.

Can a friend, family member, co-worker, team member or other person pickup my packet/bib/shirt during early packet pickup?

Yes, just make sure they have your confirmation with them along with your name and they can pick up on your behalf.

I have a baby in a stroller do I need to register him/her?

We ask that all participants on the course are registered. Use your discretion for infants in strollers.

I'm running/walking with a stroller is that ok?

Yes however, for the peace of mind for all participants we ask that you line up in the very back, yield the right of way to runners/walkers, do not weave and be alert while on the course.

I'm bringing my fur-baby, what can I expect?

This is a pet friendly event, but we ask that if you plan to bring your pet that it is friendly and non-aggressive to others (pooches & people). You are responsible for cleaning up after your pet, so bring clean up bags! There will be water & bowls for Fido on the course and also at the finish line. In addition, in the event area (on the grass) there will be dog pools available for pooches to cool off too!

What are the award categories?

This year all participants will earn a custom finisher medal, awarded at the finish line. Additional awards will be given to the top 10 overall male & female. There are no age group awards this year.

My family didn't sign up but they want to participate in the event & breakfast is that ok?

Of course they can come and cheer you on at the finish line, but please do not ask for extra finisher medals or extra breakfast unless they have paid to participate. This is a fundraiser for Minnie's Food Pantry and we ask that you please register and pay to receive all of the benefits of the event! On race day, breakfast coupons will be available for $15 with a portion of the proceeds going to Minnie's Food Pantry; coupons can be purchased in the breakfast coupon tent near registration/packet pickup.
