Now that we are getting close to race day, we'd like to take a minute to answer some last-minute questions that we have been getting. If your question is not answered below, please feel free to contact the race organizer via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org - Thank you!
Q- I missed the boat on preregistration, will I still get a race shirt?
A- Only pre-registered registrants are guaranteed a race t-shirt. There is a minimal supply of t-shirts leftover from our pre-order so be sure to get to packet pick-up early to try to secure yours. No worries.. you will still get your edible cookie finisher medal and hot chocolate (thanks to our media sponsor SSPTV) and candy canes- as well as a stellar time!
Q- How much is race-day registration?
A- $25. If you bring a small toy donation for our local chapter of Toys for Tots, you will be discounted to the $20! It's our way of saying thank you for donating to a fantastic cause!
Q- Are jogging strollers permitted?
Q- What time is packet pick-up?
A- 7:30-8:30AM at the John & Ruth Gould CVCO Building (311 Main Street Conyngham PA)
Q- Where can I park?
A- NO parking on Main Street- this is our race route. Parking is available in two locations for your convenience. CVCO building parking lot, as well as Whispering Willows Park loop parking (less than a 2-minute walk away from CVCO building).
Q- Are you having a "costume" contest?
A- Yes! The most festive costume gets a special surprise from our team!
Q- Are there awards given?
A- Yes, age group awards will be given (listed on our main page). Additionally, prizes will be awarded to the top female and top male finisher overall.
Q- Are there showers to use afterward?
A- No. There are bathrooms inside to use but unfortunately no showers. We are working on this for next year- perhaps teaming with the local gym that does have a shower.
Q- When will the award ceremony take place?
A- Directly following ALL finishers of the race.
Q- When can I get my free beer? Most importantly, where?
A- Conyngham Brewing Company will open its doors at 10:00AM (by law). It is just a few short steps away from the CVCO building. You're welcome. Make sure to keep your race bib on, your race bib (and age verification) are your ticket to a complimentary beverage!
Q- What kind of adult beverage will I get?
A- Mark @ Conyngham Brewing Company has a few on tap for you to choose from so you'll be sure to find something that you fancy! Thank you, Mark! PS- Stop by the CBC later Saturday night from 5-9pm for live classic rock Stillwater Unplugged. No cover! CBC will remain open until 11:00PM.
