Can I switch events/distances?

Yes you are able to change races until Thursday June 1st at midnight online or at packet pick-up on Friday or Saturday.

Why did you eliminate the Half Marathon this year?

We made the difficult decision to eliminate the Half Marathon this year because it did not bring in enough runners to justify the cost in time, focus and money that was required. We felt that by reallocating those resources to the more popular races, we could make them even better for participants, while also bringing in more money for our cause. We will re-evaluate this decision at the end of the event, and will keep an open mind about bringing the Half Marathon back in the future should it become clear that sufficient demand exists. We hope that those who had their heart set on the Half Marathon will continue to support us at one of the shorter distance races.
