Every participant will receive a beautiful, top-quality, short-sleeve shirt. Shirts must be picked up at the bib pick-up hours or on race day. They will not be mailed. While we will do all we can to ensure you receive the shirt size you request, unfortunately, we cannot make any guarantees.
As this is a charity event, we are unable to offer refunds or transfers on entry fees.
You can now register and run as a team! Not only do you get bragging rights for being awesome, we have special prizes for the top Male Team, Female Team and Mixed Team. What’s the prize, you ask? 5 Lululemon Gift Certificates per winning team!
There’s no limit to the number of people on your team – but you must have at least 5 to qualify for prizes; the five fastest runners will count for scoring.
You may pick up your bib and registration packed the day before the race, or on race day.
