Weather

The race will be held rain or shine.

If the weather is anticipated to be cooler, we recommend that you consider bringing old clothes/jackets to stay warm before and as you start the race. Then, during the event as you warm up you can throw the clothes/jackets to the side of the street where our team will pick them up and donate them to the Salvation Army.


Miscellaneous issues

If the event is cancelled due to any reason beyond the control of the organizer, the entry fee will NOT be refunded to the runner.

We realize that things come up and prevent our participants from running and/or they change their mind about which event they want to participate in. We are happy to accommodate any transfer requests (participant to participant and event to event), but the last day to submit these requests will be January 12, 2019. Please complete a transfer request here.

“No registrations will be accepted after January 12, 2019 at 5:00 pm or after race hits maximum capacity. No last minute registrations and/or changes will be accepted at the Packet Pick Up & Expo.”

*High school and collegiate athletes should be aware of the effects of accepting cash prizes. If cash prizes are accepted, this may affect your eligibility.
