Other Important Details

Official 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.

Register by March 31, 2020 and your shirt and/or bib will arrive around April 21.
Register after March 31 and your shirt and/or bib will not ship until mid-May.


Medals must be earned by finishing the race. This helps us maintain the spirit of the traditional race experience. Medals will begin shipping shortly after the official race day to those participants who (1) added a medal to their registration AND (2) reported their race finish by the reporting deadline.

    It’s too bad that this has not been made available to Canadian residents too. 🙁
