READ UP BELOW FOR HOT TIPS on getting one of those Deeply Discounted entry slots.

  • recommends logging in or creating your account, before registration starts. This will save you time during the registration flow. Please test your account login email and password in advance!
  • will only allow you to register one person per each email account. Please do not try to register for someone else using your email account as it will not complete your registration. We recommend each athlete register for themselves first, then they can assist other athletes.
  • Once you select “Register Yourself” and the form questions load, your slot is officially reserved. You then have 15 minutes to complete the registration process or the discounted slot will be opened for another athlete and you will have to start the process over by reselecting a category.
  • If a category is ‘On Hold’ that means that other athletes are finalizing their registrations. The category will not be sold out until it says ‘Sold Out’ on the registration page. Please move to the next open category to secure your discounted registration offer.
  • Go right for a $15 or $20 dollar slot as most of the athletes will be vying for the $1, $5 or $10 slot.
  • If you receive a “You’re in the queue” pop-up after selecting a category, refresh your browser instead of waiting in the queue.
  • It is highly recommended that you use a desktop or laptop computer only when registering for best results. Smart phones or mobile phones as well as tablets, or mobile apps (eg Active App), have a much higher probability of slower or no connection to the Active registration platform for this type of registration special entry offer due to the increased demand on the system.
  • When registering please do not open multiple browser tabs to have more than one account login open at the same time in an attempt to try to increase your odds as this will not work. Active will not process more than one entry in a cart at a time.
  • The highest online registration rate for the Half Marathon event is $125, and for the 8K is $60.
  • The course time limit is 4 hours.

That’s it – GOOD LUCK!

Lost race numbers are not replaced. You must re-register. Entry fees are non-refundable.
