Hi Shannon - I believe Mike Levins has emailed you regarding your race results.  You should be included in the results now.  Thank you so much for your support of this race!

Where can you find the participant list? Thanks!

Comment by Amy Wilson on December 8, 2012 at 7:26am

Hi I registered online for this event on Nov 10th but just checked the participant list and I'm not on it and now registration is closed. Can I still race and what happened with my registration? Thanks!

Hi Kristin -- you are welcome to register at the race as a walk-up participant.  I would recommend getting there early; just bring your $10 or a toy to donate and look for the registration tables.  There is a short form to fill out and then we will give you your bib number.  We already have 500 registrants and are expecting a couple hundred more on race day, so the earlier the better!  Thanks so much.

Just tried to register online and it is closed, does anyone know if walk up registration is bad? Any hints? I have not ever done a race walk up.

Hi Kristin,

Strollers are discouraged for safety reasons.  However, if you must participate with a stroller, we would encourage you to line up at the back of the starting line crowd to prevent any traffic jams.  Thanks so much, and we'll see you Sunday!
