How can I check to see if I am registered?
You can log into Active.com and check your registration in your Active.com account. Still not seeing your registration
Are there different start waves for the walk and run?
Yes. We start the walk separate from the run to allow walkers enough time on the course and have them start before the run so that they can have the same finish line experience.
Am I going to have to navigate around walkers? What if they slow me down?
Ladies, if you’re trying to break world records – we suggest you find a different race. If you can’t support other women achieving a goal of walking a half marathon (maybe their first!), then this race isn’t for you. Yes, you might have to go around some walkers, but when you do – say hi and give them a cheer. They might just do the same and send you positive vibes on your way to a PR.
What is the difference between the Bib Only and Race Weekend Experience?
The Weekend Experience registration gives you full access to all the weekend activities. You’ll receive a custom, sparkly wristband at Weekend Experience check-in on Friday. The wristband will give you access into the Friday night welcome reception with Fellow Flowers, Saturday morning self-defense, shake-out run, and yoga. These are in addition to all the race amenities included with the Bib Only registration.
The Bib Only registration gives you full access to the Wellness Expo on Saturday from 10-6 and packet pick-up.
