Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

***The full-marathon has been cancelled this year, but we're working hard to roll it into next year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you for another event. All other events are 100% as planned!***

I can't remember if I registered for the 5k, Half Marathon, 10K, or WHAT!?
No worries! Click "find a participant" HERE and search for yourself. Alternatively, log in to your account, go into your profile, and find the race to view all your registration details.

What do I get with registration?
Great question! You'll receive a cool short sleeve unisex t-shirt for the 5K, a comfy long sleeve unisex shirt for the half and full marathon, and, of course, a shiny finisher medal that matches the race you conquered.

Is there Half marathon pacing?
Absolutely! We'll email pace times to our half marathon participants in the lead-up to race day.
Wave 2: 1:50
Wave 3: 2:00, 2:10
Wave 4: 2:20  

Wave 5: 2:30, 2:40, 2:50, and 3:00

Can I pick up bibs/swag for friends or family?
Sure thing! If you're in a group, let us know the group name for a speedy check-in. Don't forget your QR codes!

Is there a gear check?
Yes! Gear check is available. Please bring your own protective bag/waterproof bag/backpack for gear check. CBR staff will not be able to offer protective bags for your items. If you plan to check in gear please give yourself ample time to check your gear before your wave. 

Are strollers allowed with my toddler?
Absolutely! Start at the back of your assigned wave, and there's no charge for kiddos in strollers. If you want them to sport a shirt and medal, we have reduced pricing for children 9 and under. If it's just a medal for your toddler, that works too.

Are the races chip-timed?
You bet! All results are scored by chipped time from Competitive Timing, except for the Sip n Stroll 5K and Kids Run. Any award ceremony will be based on "gun" start times, with wave 1 participants taking the spotlight.

How do referrals work? I've got friends who want to run too! 
The more the merrier! You can find your unique referral URL link in your registration confirmation email from RunSignup. Once four friends have successfully signed up using your referral link you will receive a refund of $15. Please allow 4-10 days for that refund to hit your account. 

Are dogs allowed?
Absolutely, but make sure your furry friend is on a leash and starting near the back of your wave. Please, no dogs in Wave 1.

I can't make it! How do I defer my registration? 
We're sorry to hear that! The defer option can be found by logging on to RunSignUp, navigating to Profile > Upcoming Events > Manage Registration > Defer Registration.

I live over an hour away! How do I ship my packet to me?
We got you covered! Navigate to your profile on RunSignup > Manage Registration > Add-ons. From there you can easily add the packet shipping option to your registration.

Where is the shirt size chart?
Attached below!
