I CAN'T PARTICIPATE. WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
Due to the upfront nature of event costs, all entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable to other event locations.All participants acknowledge and accept this policy during the registration process. This policy stays in effect whether you are injured, have an unexpected business trip, family emergency, illness, pregnancy, etc.
Final race instructions will be emailed to registered participants the Monday prior to race day. Please check your SPAM/JUNK filters! There will also be a bib number lookup station at the Health & Fitness Expo.
Our participant shirts are men's and women's cut tech t-shirts. Unlike cotton blend shirts, they will not shrink when washed.
Yes! You are more than welcome to walk in any of our events. However we do have a 3 hour 30 minute time limit our half marathon and 1 hour time limit for our Coastal 5K. Participants must maintain a minimum pace of 16 minutes per mile for the half marathon.
Half marathon and 5K participants receive participant shirts and finisher medals. Doggie Dash participants receive Doggie Dash bandanas.
The half marathon and 5K are timed events, the Doggie Dash is not.
Strollers are NOT allowed in the half marathon. They are allowed in the Coastal 5K & Doggie Dash events, but they must start at the very back.
Yes, however we ask that you run with the volume at a low level so you can still hear any directions given to you along the course.
You are more than welcome to upgrade from the 5K to the half marathon or downgrade from the half marathon to the 5K as long as there is space available. Category changes can be made online via logging into your Active.com account. If you are upgrading, you will have to pay the difference in price; if you are downgrading, you will not receive a refund for the difference in price. The deadline to make any category changes is one month prior to race day.
Sorry! We are unable to apply discounts to existing registrations.
Unless VIP (Race Day) Packet Pickup is purchased ahead of time, half marathon participants must visit the Health & Fitness Expo prior to race day to pick up their packets. Coastal 5K & Doggie Dash participants can pick up their packets at the Expo on Friday, or near the start line on race morning. Please allow for plenty of extra time if you are planning to pick up your race packet onsite Saturday morning.
If you cannot pick up your half marathon race packet yourself at the Expo, someone else can pick it up for you. In order for them to do so, they MUST have a photo of your ID. We suggest texting a picture of your driver's license to whoever is picking up your packet. It is also helpful to provide the person with your bib number.
We are unable to mail packets ahead of time because all packet materials are shipped directly to the packet pickup site the day before.
VIP Packet Pick-up is an optional paid service that will allow half marathon participants to pick up their race packets on race morning. This is helpful if you don't live close by. If VIP Packet Pickup is not purchased, participants must visit the Health & Fitness Expo prior to race day to obtain their packet. VIP Packet Pickup must be purchased in advance prior to the close of online registration.
The races are RAIN OR SHINE! In the case of extreme weather, race officials will work diligently with local officials to determine if the race will be delayed or rescheduled. Participants will be notified via email and social medal. We suggest following us on Facebook for all updates!
Once we receive a completed Group Discount Form, we will create a custom coupon code for your team members to register online with. Each group member will need to register online separately since there is a waiver that must be signed by each individual. Group discounts cannot be used in conjunction with other offers or applied to existing registrations. Refunds will not be given to members who may have already registered prior to the creation of the group discount code. We do not hold spots for group members, so members will be not able to register after an event has sold out.
Please allow a minimum of two business days for group discount codes to be created. Codes cannot be used during the registration opening discount period. Group discounts aren't valid for the Doggie Dash.
