    • 3 Ways to Register for a Seashore Strider Event...

        • "The easiest & most popular way to register for Seashore Strider events"
      •  
      • 2. Race Day/On-Site Registration

        • Some of the larger events will also offer "early packet pick-up the day before", however most of the Seashore Strider events do everything on race-day.
      • 3. Mail-In Registration 
        • The Seashore Strider Event Page has a Universal Entry Form attached that can be downloaded and printed out

    • HEADPHONES/EAR PODS ARE DISCOURAGED WEARING IN BOTH EARS DUE TO SAFETY OF HEARING TRAFFIC
      • THIS IS A TOUGH RULE TO ENFORCE AS 85% OF RUNNERS IN RACES LISTEN TO MUSIC AND THE RRCA RECOGNIZED THAT AND MOVED THE ENFORCEMENT FROM A DISQUALIFICATION TO MAKING IT THE RACE DIRECTORS DECISION.   MOST RACE DIRECTORS IN THE COUNTRY EITHER IGNORE THE ISSUE OR TRY TO WORK WITH THE RUNNERS.   MY STAND AS A RACE DIRECTOR IS TO ASK YOU TO NOT WEAR THEM AND IF YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST THEN ONLY WEAR THEM IN ONE EAR AND AT A LOW VOLUME LEVEL.
