IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR FAMILY MEMBER RACE REGISTRATIONS
For Strider Family Memberships, every family member who is going to register for our races MUST HAVE THEIR OWN PROFILE. This is the way to register spouses and children correctly and get our Club race discount rate. Here is how to do it. One adult in the family is the Family Head. When this person logs in to our website and looks at their profile, they will have an ADD MEMBER button on the upper right of the profile. They will give each family member their own username and password and complete the form. After doing this, proceed to race registration for each family member.If the Family Head has never logged in to our website, they can click Forgot Password and follow the instructions NOTE- This action is not required to register in our Free Fun Runs. Those registrations take place on race day. Strollers are not covered under our liability insurance policy, but if you REALLY want to run with one, please start in the back, as to not hinder the other runners.
How do I run a virtual race?
After registering for the 5K, you simply choose your own starting line and time. You can run or walk, your decision. Our virtual run is based completely on the honor system.
By registering, we assume you will complete the distance required.
