Refund and Transfer Policy
There are no refunds or transfers. We expect to follow local recommendations for Covid protocols based on the situation at the time of the race. This could include requiring participants to wear masks, limiting the number of participants and/or having multiple starts to decrease the size of the crowd density.
Strollers and Dog Division
Due to the large number of children that participate in our race, for safety reasons we will have a separate division for people running with strollers or dogs. This division will have its own start following the start of the regular 5K.
Please register for this division if you plan to run with a stroller or dog (cost is the same, but it will help us get your time right). If you enter in this division, you will not be eligible for any overall or age group awards, but we do have awards for the overall winners of the division.
Bikes, Scooters, Etc.
No bikes, scooters, rollerblades or skateboards permitted in either event.
Parking in West U is extremely limited. If you can, please plan to walk or ride your bike to the race. If you do drive, make sure to park legally without blocking driveways. The West U police will likely be out ticketing and we would hate for you to have more than sore legs as a souvenir of the race.
The 5K race will be chip timed using the ChronoTrack Electronic timing system.
There will be a costume contest at 9:15 a.m. Awards will be given for costumes in the following categories:
Your Sporting Image will be taking race photographs. Photos may be viewed at yoursportingimage.com following the race.
