FAQs

 

If I register for a virtual ticket, when can I run?

Participants will need to walk or run anytime between April 23 at 12:00am to April 29 at 11:59pm. Participating during this timeframe will allow for us to compile results, pictures and videos in time for an awards ceremony and recap of the in-person race on May 4.

 

Will I still receive race materials if I participate virtually?

Virtual participants will receive their t-shirt in the mail. Make sure to register with the address you want your race materials sent to. Register by April 4 to be guaranteed a t-shirt in your desired size. Participants that register after April 4 will receive a large t-shirt.

When can I expect race packets and t-shirts?

Race packets for virtual participants will be mailed out starting on April 11. In-person participants will receive their race packets at the registration desk on April 30 starting at 7:30am.

 

If I sign up for a virtual ticket, can I still run with people I registered with?

That depends on where you are, your comfort level, and if you practice proper social distancing rules. But if that's all good, sure!

 

How will my time be recorded for the virtual race?

You will record your own time - it is the honor system. Use a GPS tracker device (phone, watch, etc.) to record your time. Snap a picture when you're done and send to us.

 

Where will I submit my results?

Send your proof of time directly to RaceWire.

 

Where will I submit my pictures and/or videos?

Send your pictures and/or videos to Kirstie Boyette by completing this form.

 

How do I download the playlist?

A link will be emailed to all registered participants one week prior to the start of the race.

 

Will there be individual prizes given out?

The logistics of a virtual race doesn't allow us to send out individual prizes, but don't fret because eternal bragging rights will be captured on video for all to see. In-person participants will be eligible for individual prizes.

 

What group award categories are there?

Fastest Team, Highest Fundraisers, and Most Team Spirit

 

How do I watch the awards ceremony?

A link will be emailed to all registered participants one week prior to the start of the race.
