In order to limit our carbon footprint, we will not be providing t-shirts for this race, BUT, get in the spirit of the holiday by wearing your own green costume – deck yourself out! We will have complimentary screen printing on site for those of you who bring your own shirts. Shirts must be compatible with BLACK ink. We will also be selling plain shirts at the event for a nominal fee. All runners will receive “green” finisher awards.
In the event of rain or any other wrench that gets thrown into our plan there will be a re-schedule date set and we are sorry but NO REFUNDS will be given. All event aspects are subject to change without notification. If you need to transfer from one distance to another; if you go up in price – you pay the difference; if you go down in price you lose the difference. If you for some reason you cannot attend the race you have 2 options, transfer your entry to a friend, or lose your entry fee, again, sorry no refunds on any portion of entry fees.
