Q: How can I verify that I am signed up?
A: You should have received a confirmation email when you signed up. You can also check your credit/debit card statement, or email us to verify.
Q: Is there a course time limit?
A: Yes! The course closes at 1:00pm. The time limit is in consideration of our hard working volunteers, as well as the safety of participants.
Q: Are dogs allowed in the race?
A: The liability insurance for the race through USA Track and Field does not cover dogs, so please leave your four-legged running companions at home for this one.
Q: Are running strollers allowed?
A: The liability insurance for the race through USA Track and Field does not cover strollers, so please no strollers. The course is also narrow in spots and does have a stretch of dirt/gravel as well.
Q: Can minors participate in this race?
A: Yes, kids 15 years of age and older can participate. However, their parent or legal guardian must sign them up.
Q: How do the corrals work?
A: We have waves starting every 15 minutes to help with congestion on the trail. New for 2018 we have an “elite” corral that is the only corral that is eligible for overall awards. Runners must prove proof of time to be eligible for this corral (Female: sub 1:40 half marathon, Male: sub 1:30). All waves are eligible for age group awards. Walkers please choose the 8:15am wave or later.
Q: Where is the best place for my family to see me out on the course?
A: There are numerous locations for them to catch a glimpse of you! We feel as though somewhere along the Alki Trail or at Alki Beach Park will be great as it’s beautiful, there are several food options for antsy kiddos, and there’s plenty of parking!
