Race Roster collects a fee on all transactions (processing fees) as this is an industry standard. Their team assists our races from beginning to end, and this fee allows them to provide meaningful customer support to all participants, covers merchant costs of processing the transaction, the technology costs of developing an online registration platform, includes event cancellation protection for participants in the case of an emergency, and ensures that the online race experience is seamless for all.
We understand that some people aren’t familiar with where these fees are spent, and may think they are an irrelevant added cost, though without them, we would not be able to host the events that we do.
Registration caps are determined based on course limits. In 2024, we expect our in-person course limits to be 3,500 participants for the half marathon, 1,500 participants in the 5K, and 150 in the kids run. These limits are subject to change based on course confirmations.
In the case of an in-person race cancellation, participants will have the option to transfer into the virtual event or receive a refund.
