      Frequently Asked Questions:

​How do I register?

​By Active.com or by mailing a check and waiver.  Day of race will also be allowed but discouraged, and at an additional cost, so we do not have long lines and delays.  We benefit breast cancer research and a breast cancer vaccine and the American Legion Sea Cadets from Post 112. 

How do I know I am registered?  You will receive a receipt from active.com or have a cancelled check - this is proof. 

When will I pickup my race packet?  At the finish you will receive your Winner's Trophy and other free gifts from our sponsors.   No pre-race packet.

Will I get a bib for timing?  Yes, we will have bibs and timing for the 5K, Half and Marathon by J7 Sports.   You can pick up your bib and timing device, starting at 6 am. 

Is there a host hotel, pasta dinner, t-shirt?

No t-shirt or specific hotel, the closest hotels are 5 miles away in the downtown area (expensive) or on I-4 and Lee Road (economy). Not a Boston qualifier, but our race qualifies for Marathon Maniacs and 50 States Marathon Club.

​Bathrooms, Water? many stops on Cady Way Trail. Port a Potties at the start. The American Legion will have 2 inside bathrooms too.  Gatorade at the central stop.

IPOD/stroller?  At your own risk.  May be bikes on the path.

Refunds?  No, its a donation, but you can defer your entry to the next year if you are ill.  No transfers to others.  You can downgrade your distance, tell us by email so we will have your correct trophy.

Time limit? (not really) 7.5+ hours for all races. A course briefing will be 2 minutes before the start.
