Q. Will there be water and porta johns on the half marathon course?

A. We will have four aid stations set up with water and Gatorade. Each station will be set up so you are able to hit it twice. Each station will have porta johns available. 

Q. I have already registered and decided to have my packet shipped to me. How do I pay for the shipping?

A. At the bottom of the RunSignUp page, you can add shipping by paying for it in the store. We will cross reference those purchases with registrations when we start the mailing process.

Q. Do you need to know if we are doing the event virtually or in-person?

A. We do not need to know in advance and you can decide which way you want to participate as the event draws near.

Q. If we decide to do the event virtually and want to run the official race courses, when will they be ready.

A. By Saturday, September 18. Aid stations are only available on Sunday, September 19.

Q. Will age group awards be available?

Q. If I register multiple people and want the items shipped to me, do I pay $8.95 for each entry?

A. No. We will combine your orders into one. Just add shipping to one of your entries and email me at and I will note it on your registration.
