Please see the  answers to the questions we most frequently receive from runner below.  If you have a specific question, please fill out the form below with your question and we will respond to it as quickly as we can.

Q: Do you allow strollers in the half marathon?
A: For the safety of our runners, we can’t allow strollers in the half. Also, we do cover a variety of surfaces.
Q: Do I have to pick up my packet the day before the race?
A: No. It is encouraged that all runners pick up their race bibs at our expo. This year we are not requiring it. Please plan to be at the race by 6:10am if you are picking up on race day. We will start our race at 7am.
Q: If the race has a cool start, will you donate our throw away clothing?
A: YES! We will have volunteers gather all clothing from the start line and first 2 miles. We will display the clothing for pick up, but we can’t be held responsible for the clothing. All left over items will be donated to local charities.
