Where is my money going?

This is not a charity event, it's a community event. Funds will be used to ensure a safe event, provide top notch swag, and prepare for future community events.

What is a 'modified in-person' event?

A modified in-person event is when there is a defined course or courses in a specific area but there are no officials there to record your start and finish times.  There is usually some course support (marking along the route to help guide your run, for example) but there is no timing equipment used to record your time.  The Run Cane Bay 5k & 10k modified in-person event will use an activity tracking app called RaceJoy to track your progress and record your results.  We will have course support from 7:00AM until 11:00AM on Saturday, March 27th.

What is RaceJoy?

RaceJoy is an event tracking app that can be used to enhance your event experience.  It uses the GPS in your phone to track your progress as you run and, if you enter in your bib number, it can automatically publish your results when you are done!  Check out more about RaceJoy here.  You can still use a fitness activity tracking app at the same time (such as Garmin or an Apple Watch).  In fact, it is encouraged.  RaceJoy should be considered an 'event tracking app' (tracking your progress and submitting your finish time) while your fitness app is tracking your actual activity (tracking your heart rate and steps, etc...).

Do I have to run with my phone?

No.  However, since this is a modified in-person event, you will need to keep track of your time and enter it manually.  You can use any activity tracking to record your progress and submit your results here. Make sure you select the correct event / distance.

Will you offer Refunds?

Due to the need to repurchase items, we are not able to offer refunds. You will receive your swag regardless. In the event this race changes, as long as you complete the course using RaceJoy you will still be eligible for in-person prizes and drawings.

Do you allow Wheelchair Athletes and/or guided runners?

You participate at your own risk.  Please yield to other participants that may be nearby. When this FAQ was prepared, there was a section of the course that is not paved.  It is short, but it may be difficult for a wheelchair athlete to navigate.

Is there a Start Gun?

The event will have an open start between 7:00AM and 10:30AM on March 27th.  We encourage you to use the RaceJoy tracking app to record your progress and automatically submit your results when you are done.  When you register, you will be asked to select a wave start time.  We ask that you arrive ready to run a few minutes before your wave time.

This event is scored and timed with  a rolling start, each runner’s progress can be monitored via the RaceJoy app.
