Additional info

Great Opportunity! If you're not looking to win the race, consider signing up to be this year's Slow Bunny (the last finisher). It's free and you still get all the standard race perks. Your only requirement is that you finish at leat 50 feet behind the person in front of you (unless you are with your friend). There can only be one Slow Bunny, so be quick. Er, Um, hop to it! Email us and we'll send you the Slow Bunny code for this year if you are first.

Refunds:

Entry fees are non-refundable.

Walkers/Pets:

Walkers: Yes! Our belief is that a 5K is for runners and walkers both. All we will ask is that everyone seeds themselves in approximate order of speed and for start-of-race safety concerns - we will have walkers start in the second half of the pack instead of the first half of the pack. The race is chip timed, so no matter where you start, you'll still get your accurate times.

Pets: For the safety of all participants AND pets, no pets are allowed in the race.

Strollers:

In addition to running, we support health, fitness, babies, fun, etc. We'd love to have you! All we will ask is that everyone seeds themselves in approximate order of speed and for start-of-race safety concerns - we will have strollers start in the second half of the pack instead of the first half of the pack. The race is chip timed, so everyone, including those with strollers will still get their accurate times. There is no charge for stroller babies (they're not walking or running after all) and they will not get the shirt, goody bag, official times, etc.
