NO SWAG Option

In our survey for 2016, runners would like to see a no swag option where they will not get a race kit.  We now offer that option for those who do not wish to have a race kit but will still receive a finisher medal, drinks, snacks and awards (if they qualify) post race.  They will also receive avails of first aid, water / gatorade stations, porta potties, Acadia Facilities (showers, gymnasium) and free parking.  Those who choose not to have a race kit will still receive a race bib and will have the services of Atlantic Chip for their run time.  We guarantee race shirt sizes until August 8th at midnight at which time it will then be a first come first serve until we run out of a particular size.  Register early to avoid disappointment.

Deferrals and Race Transfers

We DO NOT allow deferrals for any of our running events. We are however, offering a transfer of registrations to another runner but there will be a service charge of $1.95 in the registration platform.  It will be the responsibility of the runner to look after the transfer and associated costs.  Thank you for your understanding of our policy. Our deferral policy has become a logistical nightmare and every year we have runners asking if they can give or sell their registrations to other runners wanting to participate.  We feel this is a much better option for folks. 

Walkers

Every year we have a number of folks who come out and walk an event.  We encourage those who want to participate as a walker to come join the fun and you will get the same race kit and finisher medal as all participants because we celebrate being physically active at the Valley Harvest Weekend.  All we ask is that you are able to complete the event within 6 hours and that if you are walking, to start near the back of the pack so runners can begin their run with momentum.
