Race registration fees (and the processing charge from RunSignup) are not refundable. These funds are used to pay for race premiums, permits, supplies, staffing, and other costs incurred before, during, and after the event is held. To be consistent and fair to everyone we cannot make exceptions to this policy.
Registrants will run (or walk) their race distance on either Saturday, September 23rd or Sunday, September 24th. If you are participating in the Virtual 5K and would like to be listed in the results make sure you are tracking your time and distance. You can do so with a watch or running app (example: Garmin watch, Strava App). Make sure you run the whole distance (3.1 Miles for a 5K) - you don't want to do all that work and come up short. You will then be able to report your time. Results will be automatically updated as race times come in. We also love when you share your photos on social media.
Note: Virtual registration will close on Friday, September 15th at 11:59PM.
Virtual Runners will be able to submit their results through text or email (if opted in) or through the runsignup.com results page starting on Saturday, September 23rd through Sunday, September 24th at 11:59PM Eastern Time. If you have questions about submitting results don't hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com.
Become an event sponsor and promote your business to hundreds of attendees while supporting a great cause.
Get your company to put together a corporate team and receive 10 standard race entries (additional race entries and sponsorship opportunities available based on team fundraising) - includes chip timing, T-shirts, Zoo admission, giveaways, and refreshments.
The most important component to Run Wild for Autism is our families and partners coming together to raise funds that help us continue to serve the autism community. Your dollars allow the PFA staff to offer resources, training- both in person and virtual, and recreation events. It is because of YOU that we have been and will continue to serve our families. Thank you!
Be sure to check out this year's fundraising Incentives and aim HIGH. You will not want to miss out on this year's incentives.
There are several opportunities to pick up your race materials before race day so that you will be ready to go when you arrive on Sunday. If you are unable to attend the pre race packet pick up sessions you are also able to pick up your race materials on-site on race day.
