Prizes?!?! How do I receive raffle tickets for the prize drawing?
For every 3 non-perishable items that either participants or spectators bring for the Hunger Task Force, you will receive a raffle ticket for some awesome raffle prizes!
Can I push a stroller or bring my pup?
Due to size of the paths, pups and strollers are not allowed on the course. We love dogs- in fact we have 3 at home. However, the crowds of folks (who may or may not be as much of fans as we are) can be unpredictable and can startle a pup in an instant, or may not be paying attention and trip over a leash or Spot himself. Furry Friends are welcome at the finish line with a friend or family member outside of the crowd.
I don't run....can I walk?
Yes! There is a 30 minute/mile pace on the course. We ask that walkers move towards the back of the crowd at the starting line to allow for runners to keep their preferred pace.
My friend bailed on the event. Can I take his/her place?
You may transfer your registration to a friend for a $5 fee before April 25 (plus any applicable processing fees from RunSignUp). You may do this from your account on runsignup.com.
