Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- Can we move the 1 mile fun run to 8:45am instead of 8:05am so parents could run in the 5K and watch their student run the 1 mile, also? Answer is being researched. Answer: Yes, the 1 mile has been moved to 8:45am.
- If we sign up for the Virtual run because the sports tournaments are the same weekend, may we run at the 5K if it turns out that students will not be attending the tournament?
Answer: Yes, however, you will need to be at the race no later than 7:15am to get your bib and to activate the chip. If you show up after that time, you will not be able to race. The race bib chips take up to 45 minutes to activate. The time of 7:15am has been set by the timing company.
