You are receiving this email because you have not yet selected a start cluster time for the half marathon or 5k. Please do so as soon as you are able so that 1) you can have a better choice of starting times and 2) so that we can better plan out the number of runners participating this year on Saturday, May 1st.

Remember: All 2020 deferred runners will have the option of:
  • Running the half marathon or 5k with us in 2021
  • Deferring their registration again to 2022
  • Transferring their registration to someone else
  • Transferring to a virtual race

Instructions for each of these options can be found below, so please read the message below in its entirety.

*If you registered for the marathon distance in 2020, you should have received an email from Tracy in January with details on what to do with your 2021 registration.


If you plan on running with us in person on May 1st:
Great! Please log in to your race account as soon as possible and choose a start corral and start time. LINK HERE. Log in to your profile at the top right, then click on our race, click MANAGE REGISTRATION, go to the bottom and click CORRAL, pick one and save your changes.

NOTE: If you were signed up for the marathon distance and plan on running the half marathon or 5k this year, you will need to switch to that distance before you are allowed to select a start time.

NOTE 2: If you registered with another person, they may need to sign in first and allow you to edit your info before you are allowed to select a start time. (That's the tricky one sometimes.)

We will have start clusters every 3 minutes and are allowed 60 people per cluster. You can sign up for any cluster you like, but be sure to do so quickly, as spots will fill up. We are asking that runners not come to the start corral until no more than 10 minutes before their cluster starts. Once you get to the start line, you may start your race. At this time, masks will be required at the race site and in the corrals, but can be removed when you start running. Any changes to these policies will be communicated as they are received.

If you do not plan on running with us in person on May 1st:
We understand if you are not comfortable gathering or running with us at this time. We have created several options for you, please see below. You will need to log in to YOUR PROFILE in order to accomplish this (login at top right).

  • Defer your registration to 2022: You can choose to defer your registration one more year by using the instructions on THIS LINK. This will be available for any distance.
  • Transfer your registration to someone else: In order to transfer your registration, log into your Runsignup account and click on your profile. Click "upcoming events" then "manage registration" and finally "transfer to another runner." Follow the instructions and fill in your new runner's information as asked. There is no fee to transfer your event.
  • Run the Virtual Race: You sign switch your registration to our Virtual Run and do the run from home. Any distance will be accepted. We will mail you your teeshirt, medal, and bib for no additional charge. Follow these instructions to transfer to the Virtual Race. Virtual Race packets will be mailed out after April 15th. The mailing for these packets is included in the price of the race, so do not select the packet mailing option during registration.

* Rolling race start - you will choose your start time, as referenced above.
* Reduced participation densities - arrive to start area no more than 10 minutes prior to your wave.
* Masks worn at start and finish - can be removed once you begin running.
* Post race food will be Grab & Go - pre-bagged for easy distribution.
