Are you doing Groupon/Living Social in 2015? I sure hope not. It really jacked-up our check-in process. Since you asked, use Coupon Code HALFOFF to get the $35 Groupon/Living Social price.
Can kids run? Nope- Per our insurance, this one is 21+ only. No strollers either:(
Why is it so expensive? Because we're raising money for Backpacks of Hope and doing our best to make it an awesome event.
How do I change my bib name? Log into runsignup.com and make it happen. Or We will have some Sharpies on-site for your coloring pleasure.
Is there a VIP option? We are not doing VIP in 2015. Our Beer Stops did such a great job of pouring, there weren't substantial lines in 2014.
