When should I register?

Registration for 2018 has not been set. Please check back!

Can I switch from the 5K to another race or transfer my entry to someone else?

Registrations may NOT be transferred to another distance, but race registrations for select TCM events may be transferred to another person through the automated TCM transfer process. Registrations may only be transferred within the designated transfer period for each event and within the same event and distance as the original registration. The Women Run the Cities transfer deadline is September TBD, 2018. Additional fees and restrictions may apply including ineligibility of some registrations completed using an invitation code. Once race numbers are assigned, they are never transferable. View step-by-step instructions to begin a transfer. Email [email protected] with questions.

Can I receive a refund or defer my entry to next year?

Refunds are available within 48 hours of registration only. To request a refund, email [email protected] or call 289-7701 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. Deferrals are not permitted.

Can I participate with a stroller?

For the safety of participants, individuals are strongly discouraged from using strollers/joggers. If a registered participant chooses to use a stroller/jogger, he/she should indicate so by checking the box in registration and begin at the back of the start corral and move through the course in a non-competitive manner, yielding to all other participants. A registered participant on the course must wear the official race number of the event in which they are participating.
