Description

UPDATE: We have opened up some more spaces for the 5K and 10K. We have surpassed the number of Halloween themed medals that we ordered, so anyone who registers after October 26th will not be guaranteed a Halloween themed medal, but we WILL make sure that you get an Awesomesauce medal. So, no matter what, EVERYONE will get a medal of some sort!

We are a go for 2021! Just like for Burn Your Half Off this year, we'll be at the Chickamauga Dam rather than our usual location at the Fry Center. It is what it is, y'all, and it's a HECK of a lot better than no race at all!


What's better than running by yourself? Putting on a costume and running (or walking!) with a bunch of crazy fun people, that's what! Spend your Halloween morning running or walking along the beautiful Tennessee River, with a bunch of the funnest people you've ever met.

The course is basically completely flat, on a paved path that meanders by the Chickamauga Dam, behind the campus of Chattanooga State, and alongside the Tennessee River. We have toilets that flush and sinks with running water and soap. Because fighting with your costume in a port-o-potty sounds like a recipe for disaster.

You will pass the start/finish/aid station area multiple times throughout the race. This means you're welcome to leave a drop bag to access your own personal goodies and you can shed layers as you warm up. This is also a good place to reapply sunscreen, address any potential issues such as blisters, etc.

The race is super low-key and non-competitive; we'd prefer to race you vs. you, not you vs. anyone else. It's a group run type atmosphere, just with finish times and medals at the end! There is a 4 hour time limit for all distances. Walkers are welcome!

Your registration fee includes entry into the race distance of your choosing, race swag, finisher medal for all distances, and our usual aid station setup including Gatorade, water, Gu, and snacks and post-race food. We promise we will keep you full of all the candy you need to pre-game for the big night!

We will likely be doing swag similar to our other races this year; we'll bring out the warehouse and let you choose exactly what you'd like! Shirts, hats, tank tops, hoodies, beach towels, stainless steel travel cups, whatever we can find!

As with any other race put on by any other company, registration fees and add-on fees are final and are not refundable or transferable for any reason. Prices are subject to change. The races will go on rain, snow, or shine.

Costumes are encouraged, but not mandatory. This is a family event, so please keep your costume kid-friendly! We recommend doing a training run or two in your costume. We're happy to assist with first aid for chafing, but it's a lot easier if you are ready for it, instead of discovering it a couple of miles in!

 

***********IF YOU DEFERRED OR CHOSE A RACE TRANSFER DUE TO A CANCELLED RACE IN 2020***********

Making individual codes for every person who deferred or transferred a race in 2020 would take a really long time, and it's just way too labor intensive to make sense, so we have set codes for each race that we were forced to cancel last year. If you were one of the people affected (i.e. you paid for a race last year and did not attend and did not choose the virtual option, due to the pandemic), here is what you do: Register, DO NOT PAY, use the coupon code that refers to the race that you did NOT complete and did NOT choose to do virtually. You may only use this code ONCE. The code may be used for a distance equal to or shorter than the one you were originally signed up for. We WILL be checking the list to catch anyone who fraudulently uses a code, and you will NOT be permitted to participate on race day, and will be banned from all future Awesomesauce events, so we suggest you don't try any funny business. DO NOT use the codes if you were NOT signed up for these races in 2020. DO NOT use the codes if you chose to have a virtual packet mailed to you. 

If you pay for your race registration without using the code, you will NOT be refunded. Do not pay and then email us or ask us on race day for a refund because you were due a race deferral/transfer. Runsignup charges us to refund you, and it's a hefty fee that makes us lose a lot of money, so we will not do it.

Things are still VERY touch and go this year, and we do not expect all of our races to be scheduled in 2021. We are taking each state, municipality, and park one at a time and doing our very best to get as many races up and running as possible. Many factors contribute to whether or not a race can happen. Like with this park, they were willing to work out a compromise on location for us, while keeping everything else the same, but not all locations are operating with such flexibility and being willing to accommodate our standards. If the race you want to hold out for is not open for registration, that is because we simply DO NOT KNOW if it will be happening. We don't have a crystal ball. There are a lot of things outside of our control, many people involved in making decisions as to whether races can go on. Emailing to ask isn't going to get you an answer, because if we KNOW we are able to have a race, we will post it on our website and open registration. Your race transfer/deferral will be good until at least 2023, so you can wait on using it if you'd prefer.
