Q: How does the timing system work? A: On each of the race bibs handed out at registration, there is a timing chip embedded on a strip on the back. There is a timing mat at the Start/Finish that will record your time as you pass over it. Finishing times for all partipants will be uploaded to our website after the race under the "Results" section of the website.
Q: Can I sign up for more than one race? What if I decide on race day my child wants to run the 5k after finishing the 1 mile? A: No. Given the races will be running simultaneously, we can only allow for registration for one of the races.
Q: Can adults compete for the trophies? A: No, while we encourage parents and teachers to participate with the children, trophies will only be awarded to the top male and female child finishers for each race.
Q: Are larger sponsorship opportunities available? A: Yes! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your inquiry and someone will respond to you promptly.
Q: Are scholarships available? A: Yes, any child in the Reed School District is welcome to run regardless of financial ability. Please email email@example.com for more information.
Q: Who do I contact if I still have questions? A: Scroll to the bottom of the event registration page for our contact info or email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will respond to you as quickly as possible.
Q: Can I do the race with a stroller? A: Strollers are welcome. We kindly ask that you start at the back of the race for safety and respect for other runners.
Q: What if I want to run with both my kids, but one of them is in a stroller? A: Your older child may run together with you and their younger sibling in the stroller but you must start at the back for safety concern and respect for other runners.
Q: How do I reunite with my child after the race if I am not racing or if we become separated during the race if racing together? A: There will be a designated meeting area for finishers and their families. We highly recommend that you and your child discuss your post race meeting spot prior to the race.
