RegShield covers athletes of all backgrounds. Racing isn’t easy. Athletes are likely to run into problems like injury, sickness,or a litany of other covered reasons.

RegShield is a protection product made for athletes by athletes. Our protection provides coverage for 16 different roadblocks. These are the reasons that most athletes are unable to compete in their events.

By | Course, Registration | No Comments

Yes, in the 5K distance only.

We will allow participants to push a child in a stroller in the 5K event only; there will be a $5 fee for this entry. You will be provided with an additional bib that must be worn on the back of the individual who is pushing the stroller. This additional bib is for everyone’s safety and will read “STROLLER” to indicate to those around you that you are pushing a stroller.

This is a recreational category and you will be assigned to the purple corral and asked to start at the back.

Please note, you will only receive 1 finishers medal for this entry.

Why is there an additional $5 fee?

The additional $5 charge for running with a stroller covers the cost of an additional bib as well as administrative support to ensure all stroller runners are prepared to participate safely and enjoy your experience on race day!

What happens if the event sells out?

Will you be posting the percentage of registrations on your website as events get near full?

We will be posting updates on our social media accounts with updates on registration numbers.

Our events regularly sell out, so register as soon a possible to avoid disappointment.

Facebook   Instagram  Twitter

Can I sign up for a waiting list in the event that a registered participant opts not to run?

If an event sells out, we do not start a waitlist.

You are able to find a person with a registration is no longer interested in participating, and transfer the registration.

I can see that there are lots of people who would still like to register, why can’t you increase the capacity?

Unfortunately, we are not able to increase the capacity of our event. The capacity is based on a variety of aspects including participant safety, road closure timing, participant resources, and many other aspects. With these elements in mind, we are not able to increase the capacity at this time.

Are you able to connect me someone who is interested in transferring bibs?

We do not have a waitlist for our events, and because of that are not able to connect you with someone who is interesting in transferring bibs. Please check out the Facebook Event Page as there are routinely people there who have registered, and for whatever reason, can no longer run.
