You may register for the race in-person (if we are not sold out). We can not make change. Exact cash or checks only. Entry fee will not be adjusted if we are out of shirts or any other race swag items.

To facilitate a smooth operation event morning, we encourage all participants to pick up packets before race day, but we are happy to still offer race day for those where that is the only viable option!

No-shows (those who do not pick up their packet race week or race day) will not be mailed their event shirt or other packet items. No exceptions.


Answers to Our Most Common Questions

How do I volunteer to help with packet pickup? Thanks for asking ;-) Yes, we need volunteers! Since we close packet pickup 15 minutes before the race start, participants can help race day morning with packet pickup. Email us if you can help with what day and hours you are available. We depend on volunteers to make this event happen!

How do I pick up my packet? Look up your bib number out here on our website early race week and bring that to give to the volunteer. Same thing race morning in the packet pickup area - look for the alphabetical listing before getting in line to pick up your packet if you forget to look up and bring your bib numbers.

How to pick up another person's packet?  Bring a signed note or printed email (sent to you from the registrant) giving permission from that person. DO NOT EMAIL US that you are giving permission to another individual!

What exactly am I picking up? Racing bib (the timing chip is attached to the bib), safety pins, and your event technical running shirt. We do not promise goodies and samples from sponsors. The focus is on a well-executed event, so we focus on that first and foremost and that leaves no extra time for us to find folks willing to give 1,200 items (a large quantity to many potential sponsors!) to us to give out for free.

We will not have maps or any other website information available printed out at packet pickup or in your race packet. It's environmentally wasteful when such information is so easily available here on this site. It is your responsibility to print off the info you or spectating family/friends will need from our website.

What if I don't like the shirt size I requested during registration? We guarantee the shirt size you signed up for. If we have extras in other sizes, you may swap. If not, you may bring the unworn shirt to the race and swap after we've started the 5K. At that point, we can swap out of the packets of those who did not pick up. Up until then, we need to make sure we have a shirt for everyone pre-registered.

I'm picking up for a group. What do I do? If picking up for 5 or more people Wednesday through Friday, we ask you to please NOT come right when pickup opens. That's usually when the line is the longest and volunteers are just learning the ropes so filling packets is a little slower.
