How does my company become a T9k Expo vendor?
Send an email to email@example.com telling us about your company and product and we'll let you know if your product or service is a good fit. We do not charge an Expo fee, we just ask that in exchange pass along your goods or service free to our Expo attendees
What if I register and then become injured or am unable to attend the race?
Your race entry fee is non-refundable. However this year, you can sign-up for race insurance through Active.com. You pay the $7 fee and apply with the insurance company for a refund in case you get ill or injured. Read through the details when you register to see if this option is right for you. The insurance is a third party company and so you would communicate with them.
Can I register on site the day of the race?
Yes! We are accepting race day registrations. Please get here extra early and bring cash or a check to pay.
Can I transfer my registration to another runner?
New this year! You CAN transfer your registration but only up until a certain deadline: September 15. There is an additional $10 fee for this. You take care of this through your registration number so make sure you hang on to all of your information! After the above deadline, the registration is non-transferable.
Where can I pick up my race packet
Early Packet Pick-Up: Highly recommended! If you registered by October 10th and specified a store pick-up when you registered, you can grab your race number, goodie bag, and race shirt at that particular store beginning Wednesday, October 16th through the end of the day on Saturday, October 19th. If you registered to pick-up your packet at a specific store, then that's where you need to pick it up!
Directions to the stores can be found on our store web pages:
If you just can't make it to one of the stores, you can register to pick up your race number and goodie bag at the race site on race day from 7:00am to 8:30am.
Can I pick up my packet at one of the stores even if I registered to pick it up on race day?
No. Sorry. If you registered to pick up your packet on race day then it will NOT be at one of the stores and you will need to wait and pick it up on race morning at the race site.
Are there parking fees at Lincoln Park?
Yes, and these vary according to where you park. There is free parking on the street if you can find a space!
Can I bring my dog?
No, sorry but it just gets too crowded out on the race course for your little buddies.
Can someone else pick up my race packet on my behalf?
If you trust 'em, we trust 'em.
Will there be gear-check area?
You bet there will be – your stuff will be safe and sound!
Can I wear my personal music player with earphones?
If your music gets you jazzed up to run, then by all means listen to it! But please wait until the start of the race so that you can hear any directions and information prior to the starting gun. And please be aware of others, including the course marshal directions as you as you rock out to your personal play-list! Thanks.
Can I ride my bike to the race and have it watched?
We highly encourage this green way to commute! We will have some bike racks to lock your bike onto but please bring your own lock. Though we will have a volunteer stationed at the bike corral, we are NOT responsible for any damage or theft of your bike!
Can my little one ride her tricycle or bike on the course while I run?
No trikes, bikes or dogs are permitted on the race course. We want to keep the event safe for everyone.
If you have any questions shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there!
