FAQs
I am a half marathon runner. What time do I start at?
Half marathon runners are reserved at 7:30am. You do not need to email to confirm. This is because we have a 10:30am cutoff and want to make sure that you have enough time to finish. If you run a sub 2 hour half marathon, you can email us to request a later wave at 8:30am.

Where is My Shirt?
We don't have the hassle of picking up packets, instead we mail your shirt to you! Your swag will be shipped directly to your address. It will arrive at latest by the week of the run if you signed up prior to 2 weeks before the event. If you signed up within 2 weeks before the run, you'll get your shirt after the run date but you can run in any shirt you want.

Where is My Race Bib?
Race bibs are provided by our coordinators on race day so you can simply show up and run!
ChevronLeft
When can I expect a course map, google map link to the start line, and run details?
Please keep an eye out for an email which will go out the Wednesday before the run. It will contain all of this important information. We usually wait to make sure there aren't any final adjustments before sending it out which is why we do it the week of the run.
ChevronLeft
I want my time taken. Do you have timing chips?
We don't use timing chips but we can definitely help you take your time. We have an easy process that our coordinators can help you with where they note your bib number, start and stop time!
ChevronLeft
Is there storage for me to keep my stuff?
We don't have storage but will have a coordinator at the start line. Please make sure that you do not leave any valuables behind as we are not responsible for looking after them during the run but rather keep them on you. You may put your belongings near the start line in sight of our coordinator if that helps but we can't assume responsibility for any items so make sure you have all valuables on person, vehicle, et.

Is there a hydration station?
Our courses are out and back loops so there is water and snacks every 1.5 miles at the start line. If you need more than that, please bring some with you to run with.

Are dogs allowed?
As our runs are more casual, we are OK with dogs so long as they are on leash and following park policy.
