How can I volunteer?

Check back for more information about volunteer opportunities.

Why does my GPS say the course is longer than 3.1 miles?

On race day, if the distance shown on your device is slightly more than the official race distance, it just means you weren’t cutting corners-quite literally. According to the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) course measurement guidelines (pg. 20), a road race course is defined by the shortest possible route a runner could take without being disqualified. After the race, if your device shows that you ran a little farther, this just accounts for extra steps you took to run around other participants, obstacles, hit a water stop, port-o-let or stayed to the middle or outside lane. Another thing to consider it that with your Garmin or smart phone they need to be constantly connected to satellites to get a proper read. When you run under a tunnel or around high-rises this will affect your device’s distance.

Can I get a refund?

All sales are final. No refunds will be given, unless you are registered for a live race and the live race is cancelled by the event organizer, in which case refunds will be given in accordance with the policy outlined in the FAQ titled What happens if the event is cancelled?. A date or venue change is not a cancellation.

What steps are you taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of participants?

To ensure our event is as safe as possible, and you are comfortable both on and off the course, we’ll be implementing enhanced safety measures, and will provide a comprehensive list of measures to reference well in advance of event day. Our team continues to work in direct coordination with local public health authorities to meet or exceed all local guidance, rules, and regulations. In the event that we cancel the live event, each registrant will have the option of receiving a refund, deferring fees paid to the next year’s race, or applying the fees to entry into a virtual race, where we’ll mail your goodie bag right to your door.

What happens if the race is cancelled?

Merchandise orders paid for will be shipped to the address associated with the registrant’s race profile by the scheduled date of the cancelled event. In addition we will not be responsible for any costs relating to changed or cancelled travel plans or other related arrangements a registrant may incur due to any such cancellation. A date or venue change is not a cancellation.
