Any unclaimed shirts after 30 days from the date of the event will be forfeited. If you are unable to make it to the event, you may still pick your shirt up. If you are coming in from out of town, you may pick up your shirt at the registration table the day of the event. 
- To receive a shirt, you must be registered BY September 1, 2017. You may register up until October 7th. If you sign up the day of the run you will be charged an additional $5.00 to participate. We need time to order shirts so we hope you understand why we need to have a cut off date.

Terribly Organized Event

WORST run/walk event!Check-in station was 2 hour wait.Runners and walkers started same time creating huge bottleneck.Roads not blocked off, everyone crammed together on sidewalks.Tried to pick up tshirts after the race but told they ran out. New shirts supposed to be mailed out - never received after multiple attempts to contact the organizer! No excuse for poor organization/mishandling, especially if it's now on to the THIRD ANNUAL event!
