On-Site Registration Options!! (PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION)

On April 4th, 2018 11:59pm, Online Pre-Registration (including all Team Registration) will be closed, however, we will still have two On-Site Registration options available for INDIVIDUALS to register:

1) Friday, April 20th: During our optional Early Check-In/Race Packet Pick-Up for online pre-registrants

  • Location - Holiday Inn Express of Neptune - Lower level conference room
    3510 Highway 66, Neptune, NJ 07753
    Hotel Phone: 732-922-9600

  • Time: 4:00pm - 7:00pm

OR

2) Saturday, April 21st: Day-Of Registration at Bar Anticipation (the 5K Location)

  • Time: Starting at 7:30am. 5K begins promptly at 9:00am so arrive with enough time to register!

**Both options are $35.00 per person and includes: 5K Entry fee, post-race celebration & BBQ! (5K T-Shirt and Race Packet only while limited supplies last for all participants who register on-site, so arrive early!  It's highly recommended to come to the 4/20/18 option for a better chance of receiving these two limited supply items for our on-site registrants and much less wait time versus registering the morning of the 5K)

Note: Team registration is NOT available after our April 4th 2018 pre-registration deadline, so these two options are for individual registration only.

Early Check-In/Race-Packet Pickup (We greatly encourage all participants to attend this!!)

An optional Early Check-in/Race Packet Pick-up for all pre-registrants will be on Friday, April 20th, 2018.  We greatly encourage all pre-registrants to attend this!  At this early check-in, all that are pre-registered online (before pre-registration closes) will receive their race bib, 5K T-Shirt, and race packet. Any pre-registrants that attend this are already checked in for the 5K and won't have to wait on line the morning of the 5K to receive their race bib/shirt/race packet.  This greatly helps with wait time to check-in the morning of the 5K for all. Please make every effort to attend this (team members and other individuals who are pre-registered can pick up for other team members/individuals who are also pre-registered!!).  We just ask that any team members/individuals who are pre-registered and picking up for others who are pre-registered, that they ensure they get all the materials to the other person(s) and we will have you sign a quick waiver at pick-up regarding this as well. 

  • Location - Holiday Inn Express of Neptune - Lower level conference room

5K Course

5K Course Map - Please note: Our usual 5K course was recently altered a little due to unforeseen construction in an area on Ocean Avenue which prevents the police from allowing that part of the course to be used. We worked with the police departments covering our 5K course and the police made a few necessary alterations for this year's 5K course. The 5K still of course starts and ends at Bar Anticipation (as always) and has a good deal of the usual route, but there were a few changes to the course near the lake.  See below for an outline of the altered 5K course for this year. Please note this is a rough sketch on the mapmyrun website (due to timing, this is all that's available) and not a professional sketch of the new 5K course for this year.  As always, our day-of race director will have the course clearly marked the day-of the event so every runner/walker knows where to go. Registrants - Thank you for your attention to this!

TEAM REGISTRATION OPTION

Online Team Pre-Registration (includes $5 discount per person) by April 4th, 2018, 11:59 pm:

$25 per person (includes: 5K Entry fee, 5K T-shirt, race packet, post-race celebration & BBQ!)

Note: This is the only team registration option as team registration closes on April 4th (there are NO on-site registration options for teams).

*PLEASE READ:   To be considered a team, all teams MUST fundraise $400 or more and MUST have at least 8 registrants (all by the deadline of April 4th, 2018).

**Team Captains are required to be 18 years or older due to the fundraising requirements**

Each team captain must set up a fundraising page on this site, and by April 4th the page must show funds raised of at least $400 or higher.  During registration the team captain will be prompted to create a team fundraising page (required for team captains) which will require them to create their team fundraising page. Their team name will pre-populate as the fundraising team page name.  The team captain should then set a goal of $400 or higher when creating the team fundraising page and put any information about the team and their fundraising efforts in the description box. Any donations in the team captain's name or to the team name will all go toward's the team's fundraising goal of $400 or more.

Each 5K team member that joins a team is encouraged to join the team's fundraising page (but not required) to help the team captain raise the required fundraising minimum of $400 (or higher).  Your team captain has already created the team fundraising page, and any time after registering you can simply join this page as an individual fundraiser (Become a Fundraiser link under the donation section.  Look for your team's name on the drop-down to join).

Team members don't have to raise $400 (or higher) each.  This is a TEAM REQUIREMENT for the TEAM, not a REQUIREMENT per TEAM MEMBER.

If the team doesn't fundraise a minimum of $400 AND have at least 8 registrants on the team by April 4, 2018 the team captain will be charged the additional amount to reach these minimums (as agreed to on the TEAM DECLARATION COMMITMENT FORM).

FOR ALL INFORMATION AND RULES related to the TEAM REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS please view the TEAM DECLARATION COMMITMENT FORM attached in this section.

Each team captain MUST complete the TEAM DECLARATION COMMITMENT FORM (see attached in this section) and email (scan in as attachment) the form within 3 days of registering as team captain (see form for all information).

Completed forms can be emailed (scan in as attachment) to mamamarefoundation5k@gmail.com

A member of the 5K committee will contact the team captain soon after the team captain starts a 5K team to ensure each team captain is aware of the team requirements.  A copy of the TEAM DECLARATION COMMITMENT FORM will also be attached to the email with a reminder to complete/send within 3 days of staring a 5K team.

NOTE: Any online donations to the fundraising page will appear automatically on the page. Off-line donations (i.e. checks made out to Mama Mare Breast Cancer Foundation) must be mailed to our foundation directly. We will add any off-line donations to your team's fundraising page within approximately 5 days after receiving the donation check.  Any off-line donations mailed to us and received after April 4th will be entered into the system, but for award printing/planning purposes they won't go towards the team fundraiser awards (Top 3 totals amounts). Please contact mamamarefoundation5k@gmail.com to let us know if an off-line (i.e. check) donation will be mailed in so we know to look out for it. We will also send you the foundation's address to send the donation to. 

NOTE: Starting after 11:59 pm on 3/26/2018, our registration system won't allow any additional 5K teams to be created for this year's event. This won't affect in any way all of the existing 5K teams that were previously created before this date and time by their team captain. This won't affect any participants who would still like to register and join an existing team by our pre-registration deadline of April 4, 2018. This won't affect any other registration details as described here on our 5K registration website which includes our 5K pre-registration deadline for both individual participants and team participants by April 4, 2018. This will ONLY affect the ability to create a new 5K team for this year's event after the 5K team creation deadline of 3/26/2018 (11:59 PM).
