A team must have three finishers, at least one female, to be scored in either race. Team result is based on the cumulative time of the team’s top female, top male and next fastest runner. We also have an award for the largest team based on number of finishers in both races, regardless of finishing time.

Bag check:
As with all RACE events, there will be secure bag-check area (near start/finish line) for all participants.

It pays to tell your friends!
Races are more fun with friends and we reward our runners for referring others to our events. When you register, you’ll get a “share link” in your confirmation email so that RaceMenu can track your referrals.  As always, we’ll have  awesome prizes for the top referrers.

In the event of inclement weather, the event may be postponed to another date. No refunds will be issued due to conflicts with the postponement date. If RACE must cancel the event due to circumstances beyond our control, no refunds will be issued.  Please remember, all proceeds go to charity.
