When do I pick up my race number and t-shirt?
Pick up your number and t-shirt on raceday. Preregistered runners will experience shorter wait times. Early pickup is not available.
Tell me about the Inflatable/Obstacle Fun Run.
During the 1 mile course, there will be stations set up where runners have to complete an obstacle. These moderate obstacles may include things such as crawling, walking a balance beam, or stepping through tires. In addition to these stations there will also be an inflatable (bouncy house) such as a slide.
What if I can't complete an obstacle?
If you cannot complete an obstacle, you may choose to do an alternate task at that station. Alternate tasks may include things such as situps, burpees, or jumping jacks. You may choose to do the task rather than the obstacle if the line is too long at that station or you do not want to attempt the obstacle. If neither the obstacle nor task can be completed, you must remain at the station for a set period of time (marked at each station).
Is there an age limit?
