Do you have a waiting list?

Sorry, no. It is a first-come, first-serve registration process, nothing more.

I am registered but now cannot run in the race. Can I:

a.Transfer my registration to another person?

b.Get a refund?

c.Defer my entry to the following year?

d.Let someone else run with my bib?

Sorry, the answer to all of these questions is “no.”

Can I still get a t-shirt? Yes, but you have to be there yourself to get the t-shirt. We don’t mail t-shirts and we will hand just one t-shirt to each runner.

Do you give finisher’s medals to participants?  2012 was our first year! Yes we do!!

Can I be dropped off at the start instead of riding the bus? Yes, but you must be dropped off no later than 7:15am at the start area at Suicide Six.  Please say your goodbyes before drop.


Do you allow walkers? This is a running race. We provide support on the course in the form of water, traffic control and first aid for those maintaining up to a 13 minute/mile pace.

I have friends and family who want to cheer me on. What is a good place for them to watch the race? Can they meet me at the finish? The two best places to watch runners are the Village of Woodstock and at the Finish Line. There is no spectator parking in Taftsville. Spectator parking is very convenient to the Finish Line at the Polo Field.

I am affiliated with a charity that is not on your list. Can I raise money and run in the race just the same? As long as you register for the race through the normal process, raise money to your heart’s content.

Is there pre-race registration and bib pickup? Nope. The system we have in place has been developed and proven over 19 years to work very well. It ain’t broke, we ain’t fixin’ it.

Why did you move the start time to 8:15am instead of the old 10:15am start time?  In the early days of the race, we started it at 8:05am.  We moved it to 10:15am to accommodate the schedules of the local churches and to give ourselves a little leeway for the morning preparations.  Because of consistent runner feedback over the years regarding the heat of the mid-day finish time, we decided to move it to an earlier start time and we got approvals from the towns and notified the local churches more than 7 months in advance.  We know that any time has its pluses and minuses.  We felt that this time has the most pluses.

Can my friend support me by bicycle on the course? Uh uh, Nada, no way, absolutely not, bikes are prohibited from the course for safety and fairness issues.

Are there Port-o-lets on course? Great question, YES there are port-o-lets at mile 1.5, 3 and 5 for your use!

Can I use my Ipod? I need my music. Technically no. The USATF rules and insurance provider prohibit the use of radios, mp3 players and the like. Plus, we want you to enjoy the sounds of the race, including the various musical groups.

Can I run with a baby jogger? The rules prohibit baby joggers out of safety concerns among other issues. If you are out of babysitting options, we reluctantly permit them but they must start at the very back of the pack and not advance through the bulk of runners until the pack stretches out around mile 2.
