FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How do I register?
When registration is open, it will be available online and a link will be posted. You will be taken to the registration page of our timing partner, RunFAR Racing Services. That’s it! We’ll see you at the race.
Q: When should I arrive?
If you are pre-registered, we recommend you arrive at least 30 minutes before the race begins. If you need to register, please arrive up to one hour prior to the race start.
Q: Is the race open to walkers?
A: Yes, the 5K distance is open both to run or walk. Please be courteous of others and start at the back of the pack to avoid any collisions.
Q: Is this run timed?
The 5K will be timed using state-of-the-art ChronoTrack timing systems. The ChronoTrack system uses a disposable tag, called a D-Tag, which allows you to walk away from the finish without the need to have your tag collected.
The ChronoTrack timing tag (D-Tag) will be attached to your race bib. The D-Tag will be labeled with a number that matches your race number. When you pick up your bib, please make sure these numbers match, and also verify that YOUR name is printed on the bib you are issued.
Prior to the race, you must remove the tag from your number and attach it to your shoe. Please follow the instructions provided in your registration packet.
