Common Answers and Event Specifics

Registration Deadline & Race Day

Registration will be open through race day as supplies last. Most people will run that day BUT you can do it when and where works best for you. Because we strive to honor the tradition of in-person races, you’ll receive messages as if that is race day for you, just know that we’re okay with it if you need to do something different.

Medals & Shipping

Medals must be earned by finishing the race. This helps us maintain the spirit of the traditional race experience. We'll begin shipping medals after the race to those participants who:

Added a medal to their registration AND reported their finish time (by the reporting deadline)

Shirts & Bibs & SHIPPING

Shirts and bibs are printed specifically for each participant. Shirts and bibs ship regardless of whether your time is reported. All swag ships separately. Once a registration is complete (paid for), it cannot be changed. Registrations are processed according to the timelines below. Due to manufacturing and international shipping constraints, if the color of the shirt you select is out of stock, the next closest color will automatically be substituted for you.

EXTRA EARLY Shirt/Bib Shipment Deadline: Register by July 28 and your shirt and/or bib will arrive around August 12, 2020

Early Bird Shirt/Bib Shipment Deadline: Register between July 28 & August 16 and your shirt and/or bib will arrive around September 4, 2020

Registration Deadline: Register after August 16 and your shirt and/or printed bib will be printed after September 7 and arrive around the end of September.

How Shipping Works

All swag ships separately. Shirts & Medals ship with a tracking email from Bibs are sent first class with a stamp.

All items will ship according to the timelines listed for each items in this dropdown.


For tracking your distance and time, you can use whatever app or system that works best for you. All we need is the finish time. We use the honor system to verify results, so if you say you did, we have no reason to not believe you.

To report your finish time, click here and follow the prompts. This video shows what the process looks like.


Results are just for fun - but see how you stack up.

Distance Options

5K or 10K: The distance you chose when you register is technically a placeholder for you. You'll be able to select a different distance when you report your finish time. Note: the medal is the same regardless of the distance you choose.
