Q: What is your cancellation policy?
A: Entry fees to our races are non-refundable, and we do not offer transfers or deferrals to future races. Only registered runners can participate, and you may not exchange your entry with another individual. However, with advanced notice, we are happy to credit part of your entry fee to a future event. A credit worth 50% of your original race fee will be issued if the cancellation is received at least 3 weeks prior to the race. There will be no credits or refunds provided if a cancellation is made within 3 weeks of the race. Credits will be available for 1 full year from its issue date. OR you can exchange your current entry with another runner, provided it's requested more than 3 week prior to the event.
Hosting a running event is an expensive and risky endeavor. All race costs are paid for well in advance of race day, so there is no financial gain to be made if a person does not show up on race day. We want all of our registered runners to show up, run, and have fun. While we understand that injuries, conflicts, emergencies, deaths, and other unfortunate events happen and may impact your plans for participation, we must adhere to our cancellation policies.
We do not cancel races due to rain or heat. If a race location is changed, but still hosted on the same day, we will automatically transfer the registration over to the new venue, or entrants may choose to run the race remotely and we will mail awards. If a race is postponed all entrants will be transferred to the new date.
Q: I am interested in doing this honor run but I’m mostly a walker. Is walking allowed?
A: Absolutely! Many walkers participate in our races. As long as you are enjoying yourself and unfazed by the limits of time, you can run, walk, or even crawl to the finish.
Q: How should I dress for the race? Is there anything I should consider bringing?
A: We recommend you dress in layers, so you can add or remove clothing as the temperature changes. Tech fabric is the best choice for better wicking, whereas cotton tends to soak up sweat and stay wet. When it is wet or rainy, a rain jacket is a great idea since it will preserve body heat, as well as block wind and rain. On a cold day it would be a good idea to wear a beanie (wool or tech fabric are both good choices) and gloves. Some people carry their cell (protected by a zip lock bag or a dry bag) as an extra precaution.
Q: Where can I expect aid stations on the course?
A: With the course being a 0.8 mile loop, there will be 1 aid station at the start of the loop. Each time you pass, water and electrolytes will be available.
If you typically use energy gels or bars during a race or other snacks, you should bring those with you.
Q: Is there anything I should bring for after the race?
A: We recommend bringing a set of dry clothes, extra shoes and socks so you can change out of damp attire and keep warm. We provide a lunch half-way through the race, though you should take along any specific snacks or preferred foods you usually eat for the rest of the time and for after.
Q: What if I run into other users on the course?
A: The course will be open to other users during the event. Please be courteous. Where the course is narrow, please let other participants pass you if they want to get by. It is a passing runner’s job to tell the person in front that they wish to pass.
Q: Can spectators watch the race?
A: Absolutely! A loop race is the perfect opportunity for friends and family to come and root you on! There is also a nice & new playground where kids can have fun as well!
Q: Will there be a photographer on the course? Where can I access the pictures after the race?
A: More Info Coming Soon
