Q: Can I register on the day of the event?
A: Yes! You can register on race day. Just show up around 8am.
Q: Can I bring a jogging stroller/leashed dog?
A: Absolutely–please bring your favorite running companions. Just make sure they’re well-behaved. We have had vocal and disruptive dogs abuse this in recent years, so please leave unruly dogs at home. Strollers are also welcome on the 5K but not recommended on the 10K. We just ask that you please start at the back of the lineup at the starting line for everyone’s safety.
Q: What is included with my Roanne’s Race Registration?
A: Participants receive a custom Roanne’s Race cotton-feel sport t-shirt, a goodie bag, and a race bib with a timing chip. Top finishers will receive special awards, and every child participating in the Kids Fun Run will receive a medal.
Q: What is the course like? Are there a lot of hills?
A: The courses run along a mostly-flat paved trail. There are a few short segments of dirt and gravel. There is a hill on the 10k course up towards Holdener Park.
Q: Do I have to run the 10K?
A: The 5K is designed for both walkers and runners, whereas the 10K is technically designed for runners. However, we do not require anyone to run either one. We only want our 10K walkers to know that if you plan on entering any of the raffles, we hold drawings for the big prizes throughout the awards ceremony, which we start after 90% of our participants have returned, and you may not be back in time.
Q: Are there ways to support Roanne’s Race without registering?
A: Yes! We host several fundraisers over the months leading up to the race. Please check our Facebook page for details, or, if you’d like, you can donate directly here.
Q: What do I need to bring with me to pickup my packet?
A: You will need your confirmation email as well as an ID. Anyone under the of 18 is not required to show ID as long they have the confirmation email.
Q: Can someone else pickup my race packet for me?
A: Yes they are welcome to pickup your packet for you. They will need a copy of your confirmation email in order to pick it up and will be required to sign an additional waiver on your behalf.
Q: Can friends and family attend even if they do not participate in the race?
A: Yes friends and family are welcome to join you for support and to enjoy the pre- and post-race entertainment and fun.
