Those who register to participate and would like to fundraise, may join a fundraising team or raise funds with their own fundraising page (separate from, or as part of, a fundraising team). If creating a team online, create your team page, you'll then have to join your own team. Invite friends to join your team right from your page. New team members will need to know the team name in order to add themselves to the team. There is no discount for registering as a team. Team members may register for different events.

Pledges must be paid no later than October 31st, but you can definitely pay your pledges in advance. You can also turn in pledges when you pick up your packet. Pledges are not mandatory, and any individual with pledge money from $1 to $10,000 or more qualify for incentive prizes. Pledges are tax deductible, under 501(c)(3) Tax I.D. # 02-0732247. The registration fees are not counted against pledge/donation totals. We will accept registration, pledge, ticket & merchandise payments on Visa or MasterCard.

Yes. But please know the following: 1. A significant portion of the runs are on a trail; 2. Plan on starting at the back of the pack so as not to impede other runners. 3.  The half-marathon race does a double lap on the 10K course -- please make way for them as they attempt to pass you.

If you plan on bringing a dog, keep in mind: 1. The dog must be on a leash at all times; 2. Clean up your doggie's messes.

FAMILY FUN EVENT INFO

Will day-care be provided?
Yes -- for a fee. We will provide day care to the children of runners and conference attendees only (we need to know that parents are in the immediate vicinity of event central at the Park -- not outside the confines of the park on a 75 mile motorcycle rally or a 21, 42 or 70 mile bike ride).

The Family Fun Event presumes that while either parent is riding a long-distance ride the remaining spouse/relative remains behind to walk, run or just have fun with the kids. We recommend that parents have a trusted, responsible family member or friend supervise their children on what will be a truly memorable Family Fun Day.

Who is allowed on the inflatables? Will there be supervision?
Adults and kids are both welcome to the inflatables.  We also have a toddler fun tent with all sorts of toddler-friendly activities. Highly responsible and dedicated volunteers (2 per inflatable) will ensure your kids have fun and play safe.

Is the Family Fun Festival Free?
Yes.  The Family Fun Festival is free; however, all participants must sign a waiver and receive a hand stamp to participate on the inflatables, or run in the races.

Is there food provided, and can I bring my own food?
Other than the free pancake breakfast from 6:00 am - 9:30 am, there will be no free food at the Family Fun Day Event. 4US food vendors will be present selling a variety of American fare at reasonable prices (with 100% of proceeds going to charity). Also, our bike routes pass local delis and restaurants and convenience stores so make sure to pack some cash.

You are welcome to bring your own food.
