FAQ for 2015 Fashionista 5K

If I am registering multiply different runners online does payment have to be made separately? Yes, each registration form done online needs the liability portion of the registration read and signed by each individual runner. Therefore separate payments will need to be made for each runner if you choose to pay online.

Are strollers permitted? The course has some areas that become narrow with gravel and other areas of loose terrain. Stroller are not recommended on this course but are not prohibited. If you use a stroller you will be responsible for any accommodations that need to be made on course to safely navigate the stroller. Laney’s Legacy of Hope will not be held liable for any issue that arise if strollers are brought on course.

Can I walk? YES! At 2014 5K we had a large amount of walkers so you will be in good company.

Is there a shorter course or kids course? No. Unfortunately due to the area we will be running in and traffic control, we will not be doing any shorter courses.

Can I just buy a race day shirt without registering? Not at this time. You must register by August 12th to be guaranteed a race shirt. Following that they will be on sale race day but your size may not be available. So register by the 12th of August to guarantee your shirt.

Will the event be canceled if it rains? And will our registration fees be refunded if we don’t attend due to rain? No & No. This event will happen rain or shine. Of course we are always hoping for sun but in the event it rains we will make the best of it and continue to raise money for a children battling cancer.

Who is timing the race? Pretzel City Sports

Where will the times be posted? On Pretzel City Sports website following the race.

What age group is required to register? Any child that is physically walking/running during the 5K will be required to have a parent sign a waiver and register. All children under the age of 12 will get their very own bid, certificate of participation (regardless of time), T-shirt (if registered by appropriate date), and swag bag.
