Registration FAQs

1> Q: Will there be registration or Packet Pick-Up on Event morning? A: No, we will be concentrating on safely executing the event. We want this to be safe for participants, staff and minimal spectators. Please make arrangements with friends/family in the area to pick up your packets (Mon-Wed), Place, Time, TBD

2> Q: For the 5K, there are 13 rolling starts, 8:00am-10:00am,10 minutes apart and 138 max participants per time queue.... and we have to pick our time queue. Do :you have advice here? A: Yes, the goal is to have a spacious 5K. The secondary goal is not to have runners get behind walkers. If possible, we would prefer runners to try to use the early morning time slots and walkers to use the latter morning time slots. This should help ease course congestion. This may not always be possible so when we queue up for your scheduled 10 minute interval, we definitely want the runners to be up front (safely distanced) and the walkers to be in the back (safely distanced). 

3> Q: We are to receive masks in our pre-race goodie bags. Is it a MUST that we wear them during the Run/Walk? A: It is not a MUST, but if possible runners/walkers are asked to have them (or another face covering if desired) on their person to slip on in instances where they feel they cannot keep 6 feet distancing. It is required that entrants have them on prior to starting and soon after finishing. 

4> Q: Are pets allowed this year? A: No, pets are not permitted on the SWCSD ground where a good portion of our event is held. We appreciate your cooperation and support.

5> Q: What will the Finish Line Refreshment Area be like? A: We will be issuing carry out disposable waters and pumpkin pies. It will not have the normal food snacks. We encourage people not to congregate and if waiting on others, or cheering on others, to please practice safe distancing and wear masks. We ask all participants to vacate course as soon as possible after finishing.

6> Q: Where will packet pick up be, when will it be, and how will it work? A: We are still working on this. It will probably be during the late afternoon/evening hours on Monday-Wednesday, November 23-25th. Location is TBD.

7> Q: $7.00 seems a bit steep for shipping pre-event packages. Is there a way to have this reduced for multiple orders going to the same household? A: Yes, please reach out to the Event Director marksigrist1@gmail.com to arrange.

8> Q: When is the last day to order to guarantee my order can be shipped to me on time? A: November 1, 2020

9> Q: Are there refunds? A: There will be NO REFUNDS. If the event is cancelled for reasons beyond our control, we will immediately switch to a VIRTUAL OPTION only and work to ensure shipments and packet pick ups go on as planned. 

10> Q: Are the shirts going to be the usual long-sleeve technical shirts? A: No, we have decided this year to offer Crew Sweatshirts. We feel it is an upgrade and will be welcome by our participants. This has the potential of being a long stay at home winter, and we felt the warm, cozy sweatshirt will be well-received. Here is a link to the 50/50 8oz. Jerzees blend: 2020 Wattle Sweatshirt Link

11> Q: Are Jogging Strollers allowed on the 5K Course? A: Yes

12> Q: When will the 12 Mile Rotisserie Bike Ride start and where? A: 8:30am. We are working on location of start and course map. Please stay tuned.

13> Q: Are you having medals this year? A: Yes, they will be allocated to the first 1500 (5K and Rotisserie Roll) Entrants, opting in during registration process. We will not be issuing these at the finish line. We will put these in the pre-race packet pick up Goodie Bags. We will allocate 100 for the Children's Run on top of the 1500 mentioned above.
