FAQs - Registration & Pre-Race

Do I get a T-Shirt?

As long as you were registered on or before May 8, you are guaranteed a shirt. If you missed the May 8 deadline you are welcome to stop by the T-Shirt Table at Packet Pickup where extra shirts will be available on a first-come/first-served basis.

Are kids able to participate? 

Yes – if they meet age requirements. To participate in the 5K (the run or the walk) or the 10K, they must be at least 6 years of age on race morning. To participate in the half marathon, kids must be at least 10 years of age on race morning.

Are strollers allowed?

No, due to safety concerns, including but not limited to - trip hazards, the merging of all runners/walkers on course and the tunnel/finish at Notre Dame, absolutely NO strollers, joggers, wagons, baby wraps, carriers, etc. are allowed. The minimum age of participation in the 5K (both the run and the walk) is 6 years of age (on race day). Every participant must be registered and must wear their bib. Any participant without a bib will be denied access to enter Notre Dame Stadium. 

Are pets allowed? 

No - although we love dogs, they are not allowed in any event due to safety concerns. 

I need to book a hotel, can you recommend one?

Our hotel reservation link closed 2 weeks prior to the event. If you still need accommodations, please contact our provider directly at

Can I register on race day?

Yes - as long as we have not exceeded our participant cap in the event you’d like to run. Give yourself extra time to complete this process and please be aware there will not be a race shirt available for you (the shirt deadline was May 8). We do recommend that participants register prior to race day - Packet Pickup is a good time to do so. 

When and where is Packet Pickup?

Packet Pickup is Friday, June 3, from 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm at the Century Center in the Discovery Ballroom (first floor).  The address is: 120 Doctor M.L.K. Jr Blvd., South Bend, IN 46601. There is a $5.00 fee to park in their lot. You can avoid that fee by parking downtown. 

Can I transfer events?

Yes, transfers can be made at Packet Pickup. First, pick up the packet for your original event and then take it to Late Registration.

Can someone else pick up my packet?

Yes – just be sure to share your bib number with the person picking up your packet.

How do I find my bib number? 

1st Option:  Visit Use the search box to find the correct participant 
2nd Option: Log into your RunSignUp account, Select My Races, Select my registration

What if I can't attend Packet Pickup on Friday, 6/3? Can I get my packet on race morning?

Yes, packets will be available on race morning at the Information Tent in the Performance Center parking lot (across from the start line). Give yourself extra time if you need to get your packet race morning. We do recommend getting your packet on Friday though (to make your race morning a little less complicated). 

Where is the best place to find additional race-related information?

The two best places to find information are right here on RunSignUp as well as the emails that come from Sunburst Races. As we get closer to race day more emails will be sent. While we know it can be tempting to unsubscribe from the mailing list, we encourage you not to do that so you don’t miss important information and updates.
