AM I REGISTERED?
If you received an email confirmation from the online registration system, Active.com, you are registered! You can search for your name by clicking here (if your name is there you are registered). If you would like to change distances or if there is any info that needs correcting (mis-spelled names, wrong age, etc) please read the next FAQ.
HOW DO I CHANGE MY PERSONAL INFO OR RACE DISTANCE?
You can update your personal info BEFORE WEDNESDAY SEPT 15th (Gender, Date of Birth, Email Address, Day Phone, Mailing Address, Emergency Contact Name/Phone, User search on ACTIVE.com, and Custom Questions) by going to your Active.com account and clicking on “my events”. Once there, locate the appropriate event, click the Edit Registration Information link, update the info and click continue. After Wednesday Sept 15th, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or come to the pre-race Packet Pickup to make any changes.
CAN I GET A REFUND?
Sorry there are no refunds for any of our events. See below on how to transfer your registration.
CAN I TRANSFER MY REGISTRATION TO SOMEONE ELSE?
Yes you can BEFORE WEDS SEPT 15th. You can read how to transfer your registration by following this link and following the instructions. Transfers cost $20 each and do not provide free race entry for a new participant (it does allow you to recover some of the registration cost). The deadline to transfer registration is Wednesday Sept. 15th at 11:00am.
AM I GUARANTEED A T-SHIRT?
Yes, UNLESS YOU REGISTER AFTER TUESDAY SEPT 12th. If you register past Sept 8th your entry fee does not guarantee you a t-shirt for the event, sorry! After you complete your run, you’re welcome to check with the registration tent at the event to see if there are any t-shirts left over and take one at that time if available. Avoid the hassle and register before the deadline! (Shirts are a soft cotton/poly blend and run on the smaller side) The t-shirt cutoff date for this event is Tuesday September 12th at 11:59pm.
IS THERE A TIME LIMIT TO COMPLETE THE EVENT?
Yes there is. We ask that everyone run / walk 18 minutes per mile or faster. That amounts to completing the Half Marathon in roughly four hours, 10K in one hour and 45 minutes and the 5K in about 55 minutes.
CAN I RUN WITH MY DOG?
If you have a service dog, you are welcome to run with your dog. Otherwise we do not allow dogs, cats, monkeys, zebras etc into the event.
CAN I RUN WITH A JOGGING STROLLER?
Yes. But only for the 5k for this race. The path is extremely narrow and there will be two way traffic on it most of the way. It would work best to have strollers start toward the back of the pack.
CAN I LISTEN TO MUSIC WHILE I RUN?
Yes you can. However, you need to be well aware that emergency vehicles and the occasional rogue driver may be on the course. Please don’t crank your music to 11.
IS THERE PARKING?
Please check back for specific parking details closer to the event time.
IS THERE A GEAR CHECK?
For your convenience we have a complimentary clothing check, we have reusable bags for your use but we encourage you to bring your own. IMPORTANT! Please do not leave valuables at the gear check. Although our gear checks are very safe and secure, we will not be responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged items.
WHERE DO THE RACES START AND FINISH?
The race starts and finishes in front of the armory on NE 33rd Drive.
WHEN IS THE AWARD CEREMONY / WHAT ARE THE AWARDS?
The award ceremony for the Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K will take place at 10:30am at the main event stage. We will announce the top three finishers in each distance and distribute trophies + prizes. We have ribbons for top three finishers in each age category for each race distance and these will be distributed informally in the blue timing tent which can be collected anytime after your race has finished.
WHERE IS THE KIDS RACE?
The kids race starts and finishes at the finish line for the adult races. It is a 1/2 mile (total) out and back course. The Kids race will be let by Olive Root Beer and Dingo The Clown. They have been leading our kids races and keeping the kids happy in our kids zone for many years!
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN MY REGISTRATION?
We have lots of goodies for you! Besides all the swag form our great sponsors which you can collect at the event, we have a beer garden with beer, cider and wine (root beer for under 21), tasty food, commemorative t-shirt (T Shirts are a soft cotton/poly blend and run on the smaller side), Country Girl Medal, live country music and much much more!
HOW DO I GET THERE?
You can Google directions from wherever you are coming from. The Kliever Memorial Armory is located at 10000 NE 33rd Dr, Portland, OR 97211
HOW / WHERE DO I GET MY ID CHECKED AND DO I REALLY NEED IT?
Yes, you definitely need your ID. You must have a stamp or a wristband to get your beer. It is best if you get your ID checked EARLY and get it done with. Then you can avoid one more line when you finish. We have an ID check set up starting in the morning. You can get your ID checked there or at the beer area.
