We will only have a limited number of t-shirts and sizes available on-site. Once they run out, they run out! We suggest you register by the 26th to guarantee your shirt!
- Does my child in the stroller need to pay? Children who are young enough to ride in a jogging stroller are FREE (no t-shirt included and do not need to be registered.)
- Can I run/walk with a jogging stroller? Yes you may! Jogging strollers will be asked to start in the back of the race for safety reasons
- Can my child participate in the race? This race is for ALL ages! Everyone who is able bodied to participate can sign up! We have children’s sized t-shirts and LOVE seeing whole families together!
- I want to get my face painted and cheer at the finish line, can I come without registering? Yes you may! There will be a variety of activities inside the event center which is located near the start/finish line. We ENCOURAGE family and friends to come out and cheer on your loved ones! All activities are available to you except: getting a t-shirt, receiving a medal, going out onto the timed course, and eating the food we have for the participants.
