  • Refunds are available within 48 hours of registration. This policy is valid until 5 days before the event. To request a refund, email [email protected] within 48 hours of when you submitted your registration. If accepted, you will be refunded your race entry fee; online transaction fees are non-refundable. TCM does not have a deferral program at this time. 

  • Yes. One runner may pick up another runner's packet.   


    Your representative will need a completed Packet Pick Up Authorization Form and their photo ID in order to pick up your packet. Your representative will also need to have the runner’s race number.  


    NOTE: only the representative's photo ID is required, not the participant’s.  

  • Strollers are permitted in any 5K (or shorter) distance. Please indicate that you intend to run with a stroller on your registration form. You will sign a special waiver and be given a special "Stroller Bib" at packet pick up.   


    While we love our four-legged friends, we ask that they cheer you on from the sidelines and you reunite with them after exiting the Finish Controlled Zone. Thank you for your understanding. 

  • The Event Alert System, or EAS, is a color-coded method of quickly communicating to participants the potential for adverse weather conditions that can affect the race event. A series of color codes is used to indicate the increasing severity of adverse conditions as outlined here

    At TCM events the EAS flag color will be shared in the pre-race email, a packet pick up, at the Start Line, and on course during the event. Please pay attention, as flag color may change during the event.
