How will I receive my results?
Official results are posted for the top runners in each category. Race staff has all results for on-site inquiries and results are posted on the race website.
Can I use my own race chip or tag rather than utilizing the one that is provided?
No, you will be provided with a custom chip.
Who gets a T-shirt?
Only pre-registered runners that successfully complete the registration and payment processes 10 weekdays before the race are guaranteed a free race t-shirt. Additional shirts are printed for the race but are first come first serve. Pre-registered runners in the 10 days leading to the race are first to receive their shirt and preferred size.
