Q: Is there day of registration/When does online registration close?
A: Yes. On site registration is Friday from 3-7 p.m. (and packet pick up for preregistered runners) and on Saturday from 7:00 a.m. - 8:15 a.m. for 5k/Double Shot and until 8:45 for 10k only runners. Online Registration closes Thursday at 5:00 p.m. and online registration is the only way to guarantee you get a shirt in your size.
Q: Is there a route map?
A: We will do what we can to post a route map this week. We're glad we didn't post it yet because the 10k is being modified to accommodate some of our Wounded Warriors participants. If we do not get it posted it will be posted at registration. It's an easy route to follow. Basically start at Dead Dog, go south on 17, turn right, turn right again on Murrells Inlet Rd, take a couple brief turn offs, then turn back on 17 heading South to finish at Dead Dog. And as long as you're not in 1st... there will always be someone to follow. And 1st place gets to follow a race vehicle.
Q: What time is the awards ceremony, Kilt Awards, Raffle Prizes?
A: 10:30 a.m. Breakfast is available as soon as you complete your race but for the benefit of Double Shot participants we will wait until 10:30 for all awards. Please try to be present. Live music and food be going on all morning.
Q: My friends are coming but not running, can they have breakfast?
A: The buffet is only available to runners, but everyone else can order from the regular Dead Dog Saloon Breakfast menu. The full menu will be available.
Q: What's in the raffle and being awarded for best Kilt/best dressed?
A: So far with more being added, we have a registration in the Diva's Half Marathon, Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon, Oil Changes from Jiffy Lube, Gift Certificates to Dead Dog Saloon, and a 3 day/2 Night vacation from Blue Green Vacations.
Q: What sort of awards are given out?
A: In 5k and 10k we will do top 3, male/female, in 10 year age groups. There are gold, silver, and bronze medals with the race logo on them. We also will do top 3 overall male/female and top 3 Masters Division male/female.
For Double Shot we are only doing top 3 overall male/female but all Double Shot participants receive a Finishers medal (bigger and slightly different than the race design medal) and a Beer Glass with a St. Patrick's Double Shot design engraved on it. We will have extra beer glasses available in the raffle for 5k and 10k runners
