 Can I get a refund if I cannot race?

We are sorry, but we plan the race based on the number of registered runners.  Once you have registered we cannot offer you a refund. If, however, if you register and do not run, you may still pick up your race packet and shirt and join us in the fun. 

What happens in the event of inclement weather? 

The race will be held rain or shine.  If weather poses a threat to participants, we reserve the right to cancel the event.   Expenses are incurred long before race day, so we regret we cannot offer refunds should the event be cancelled. Registered participants will still receive a race shirt, goodie bag and other items.  Race organizers will inform participants if a rain out date is able to scheduled.  However, due to the amount of coordination with local law enforcement/city officials and utilization of resources required for an event such as this, an alternate date may not be possible.                                                                                       

How is the race timed?


Cajun Timing will provide DISPOSABLE CHIP TIMING for recording accurate results.  Participants will wear a bib number with a computer chip attached to the back.  As racers cross the finish line, their finish time and bib number will be entered into a computer.   Bib numbers must be attached to the FRONT of your shirt. Bibs should not be altered or crushed to ensure accurate timing.

Are walkers allowed?

YES! Walkers are very welcomed to our event.  Walkers will start at the same time as runners but are advised, for safety reasons, to start their race at the back of the pack. Also be mindful to stay to the right of the street so that you are not blocking runners coming past you.    

Are strollers allowed?  

Absolutely.  We encourage you to bring the whole family out for our race.
