FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Technically, you can wear whatever you want. You could even run naked if you don’t mind running from the police (don’t run naked). BUT a huge part of what makes these events awesome is your costumes! We encourage you to dress in a St. Patrick’s Day theme, however you interpret that.
CAN I WALK?
CAN I BRING MY DOG?
Yes! Your dog must be on a leash and be able to stay under control. Your dog’s actions are your responsibility. Also, check to see if the pavement is too hot for your pup’s paws!
CAN I RUN WITH A STROLLER?
Yes! You don’t have to register your child who is in a stroller. Honestly, you could put a grown person in a stroller and you wouldn’t have to register them- that’d be hilarious.
IS THIS EVENT TIMED?
This is a fun run, not a chipped/timed event. We will collect the times for the first 20 runners, as well as the first three runners in the male and female categories.
WHERE AND WHEN IS PACKET PICKUP?
That’s answered above.
CAN I PICK UP MY FRIEND’S PACKET?
You may pickup your friends race kits! You will need to make sure to bring a copy of their registration.
*Please note that we will be having Packet Pickup on race day but strongly encourage you to come the day before so you can avoid long lines.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
– Government issued ID if you plan to drink
– Cash for concessions and other merchandise.
– A copy of your registration. You may print or show an electronic copy!
– Spectators are welcome
