We want the event to be safe and enjoyable for all registered, which means we have to put some rules in place. The race officials can disqualify you from the race and/or grant you a one year ban from all races by The Active Joe if these rules are not followed:

  • See our Transgender Entrant Policy which applies to all races produced by The Active Joe and seeks to support, include, and protect the privacy of the transgender athletes who attend our races.
  • Race day registration will be available 6:30 am to 7:15 am if the race is not sold out. Entry fee will not be adjusted if we are out of shirts or any other race swag items. Exact cash or checks only race day morning and during race week registration at packet pickup.
  • No dogs or strollers are allowed on the race course for the safety of all.
  • Runners and walkers are both welcome, as long as you can finish by the time limit.
  • Entry fees are non-refundable, including the case of inclement weather.
  • No refunds will be granted if you downgrade from the half marathon to the 5K at any time.
  • This is a private event, so unregistered participants are not allowed. "Banditting" (as this action is referred to) is frowned upon in the running community and unfair to the runners who paid for the opportunity to participate. Race entry fees go for a lot more than water on a course, medals at the finish line, and a shirt in your race packet. It also exposes an event to serious liability risk. It stresses race resources that were calibrated for the sold-out number of participants and therefore can put other participants', the paid participants, health or safety at risk. Those who bandit any portion of the race may be banned from future events by The Active Joe.
  • Unregistered pacers are expressly prohibited in this event. In our definition, an unregistered pacer means a runner who does not have a race entry who joins into the race for at least a mile of the course to help support another runner who is registered. Besides presenting an unfair competitive advantage to one runner, regardless of whether you are a competitive participant or not, it creates a huge traffic issue on the course if this rule is disregarded. Anyone found using an unregistered pacer will be disqualified from the race.
  • Note that it is never okay to allow someone to else to use your bib without a proper bib transfer arranged with the Race Director. This can lead to serious liability and medical risks in the chance of emergency and jeopardize the future of the event for everyone.
  • Our primary goal is to provide a safe event for participants, volunteers, and the community alike. If something arises that threatens that safety, then a) the event will be altered as it is reasonably possible without stressing other resources, b) the events may be delayed during the morning, or c) the event may be canceled. The event can not be rescheduled for another date due to resource availability in the event of cancelation.
  • Event shirts not picked up at packet pickup or race day will not be mailed.
