Pre-race day packet pickup is highly encouraged. However, onsite packet pickup will be available.

If you are on a team, please check with your team captain before picking up your packet. We will be grouping packets by teams and there is a high chance that your captain or an individual from your team is planning to pick up all the team packets and distribute them at a designated time and location.

Not sure who your team caption or teammates are? See team lists here.

If you are a virtual runner, you can pick up your t-shirt at packet-pick up or we will mail your t-shirt to you the week after the race. To change your mailing address, please log in to your RunSignUp Profile and do so before August 20th. Profile Log-in Link.

STROLLERS & PETS 

Strollers and dogs on leashes are welcomed. For those participating in the 5K, you are asked to start behind the timed runners so as to not trip anyone.

INCLEMENT WEATHER & CANCELLATION POLICY 

The race will take place rain or shine. However, in the event of inclement weather (heavy rain and wind, thunder and lightning,) we reserve the right to cancel. If lightning is within 6 miles of the race start line, race officials will make the decision to delay the start until the lightning clears. 

We will make announcements of any changes through social media and over the race PA system. Participants and spectators should follow LifeGift on social media to be made aware of weather updates.

There are no race registration refunds if the race is cancelled. Due to the nature of the event the race cannot be moved to another date.

 
COVID-19 CANCELLATION POLICY

We know that it's important to have as much information at your disposal as possible before deciding to attend an event, and we want you to know exactly what your options will be should the 2022 in-person race not be able to take place as originally planned. If we are forced to cancel the in-person race due to COVID-19, all registrants will be transferred to the virtual event and participate from wherever you are.
