What's included in my registration?

All paid participants will receive an entry to the distance of their choice, a finisher shirt, a medal, bib number with timing, virtual coupons, and the opportunity to post your finisher time and personal photos of your trot.

Do I have to wear a mask?

Masks will be required in crowded areas such as the start line and corrals. Masks will also be recommended inside the expo for all participants and vendors.

Do I have to show proof of vaccination or a negative test to participate?

Per current state and county guidelines, we will not be requiring vaccinations or testing to participate in the race or attend the expo as of right now. This could change and you are required to acknowledge this unknown during the registration process. Should the county or state mandate mass outdoor events require proof of vaccinations or a negative test 48 hours before, we will be enforcing these policies. 

We are asking Trotters to be responsible for their safety and the safety of others, by not attending the event if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea.

For more info, visit our Covid-19 page.

Will there a Team Competition?

Yes! We will give $100 gift certificates to the top 5 largest teams over 20 members.

Do you offer any discounts?

We currently offer our multi-registration discount for groups of 3 or more. Because $5 of your entry goes towards one of our 96 charities, we don’t offer any other discounts. As a reminder, your entry fee includes a t-shirt, medal, timing, and goodie bag.

How do I get my shirt and medal?

Beat the race day rush and pick up your materials in advance of the race! All registered participants will receive a bib, tshirt, and goodie bag. If you can’t make it to any of the Expo days, don’t fret; you’re welcome to send a friend or family member to Expo to pick up your race day necessities – as long as they come armed with a copy of everyone’s ID and waiver.
