If I am unable to attend the race, can the race committee mail my race shirt, finisher’s medal, finisher’s award or bib?

We are so sorry, but we are unable to mail race shirts as well as finisher’s medals and awards because individuals must earn these by completing the course on race day within the designated amount of time. This rule helps us to keep the race affordable for runners and allow us the opportunity to maintaining our mission of donating to local nonprofits.
