The Details

Registration

On-site and online registration is available and we'd love to see you, your friends, and your family there! We offer 4 race distances--the 1 mile fun run and 5K on Saturday and the quarter marathon and half on Sunday. The more you race, the more you save! Add a distance to your cart, then add another event (for the same participant) and get 20% off! Add another and get $5 more off! (Please note that you can't participate in both the half and quarter marathon because they are at the same time.) You'll earn an awesome medal for every distance you complete! Other discounts cannot be used with this deal.

Packet Pickup

PLEASE NOTE that, to alleviate long lines and late starts due to many participants arriving late to pick up their packets on race morning, there will be NO RACE-DAY PACKET PICKUP. Instead, we are offering these options:
--Attend Friday or Saturday evening packet pickup and pick up your race bib and swag.
--Have your bib and park tickets (only) mailed to you for $5.00 and pick up your race swag on Friday at packet pickup, on race day before you race, or on Saturday at packet pickup at the park from 10 am-noon and 4-6 pm.

--Have your entire packet mailed to you for $20 and just show up ready to run race morning.
You must pick up your packet at one of the listed locations or choose the option to have it mailed to you when you register for the race. Packets will not be available at these locations outside of the times and dates listed.

  • If you opt for bib and ticket only ($5) or whole packet mailing ($20) when you register online, we will send your items to you approximately 5 days before the race. If you opt for bib or packet mailing, you don’t need to attend Packet Pickup. Just show up at the start line race morning with your race bib and ready to run! (Don’t forget to bring your park ticket if you plan to go to the park that day!) Select this option when registering for the race. If you do not select this option during the registration process, you can do it at a later time by clicking 

    here

    . You must be registered and have the mailing option selected by May 20, 2020 if you want your packet mailed to you. If you make this request after May 20, 2020, we will not be able to mail out your packet.



    There is no race-day packet pickup.

    Packet pickup for all distances is at the following times and locations:

  • Friday, June 5, at the Bus Parking area, Pavilion entrance, 4:00-7:00 pm

  • Any participant needing to pick up their packet can park free of charge for 60 minutes if they state they are running in the event and still need to get their packet.

  • In the event you cannot race but still want your swag and ticket for park entry, you will still need to pick up your race packet during packet pickup hours.

  • If you do not pay the small charge to have your bib mailed to you and do not attend one of the packet pickup times and arrive to pick up your packet on race day, you will be charged $20.00 cash. 

  • At packet pickup, you may pick up packets for friends and family members, but you must have a copy of the photo ID and a copy of the registration confirmation signed by each person whose packet you are getting.

In the event this occurs, no refunds or credits will be provided.
