Do you still have a family sponsorship?
Yes! Each family sponsorship costs $120 and can be done in one of two ways.
- Choose the "Donations" tab above and select Family Sponsorship.
- Add it during your race registration.
Please note that with either method, you will be asked who you would like your donation to be "on behalf of." Please choose "Other" and use the open field to indicate how you would like your family recognized on the back of the race t-shirt. For example, you may enter "Johnson Family" or "Ethan and Emily Johnson" and you will be listed this way on the back of the t-shirt with the other family sponsors. The default is "My Name." If you do not change the default, the name of the person registering for the race will be used and listed on the t-shirt.
Will there be an opening and closing ceremony?
YES! We host an opening ceremony in front of Janney Elementary immediately before the 5K race starts at 9AM, and a closing ceremony will be held near the turf field behind Janney at approximately 10:30AM after the Fun Run concludes. Awards will be presented at the closing ceremony.
Can I register the morning of the race?
No, we are not offering registration the morning of the race.
After I register for the race, how do I pick up my race bib and swag bag?
We are hosting two dates and times for packet pick up at Janney Elementary:
- THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16: 3:30pm – 6:00pm
- FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17: 3:30pm – 6:00pm
Please come to the front of Janney. You do not need to bring anything to packet pick up. Our volunteers will hand you a bag filled with giveaways from our sponsors as well as your family's race t-shirts. We have teamed up with Janney Community Service Committee. Please scroll down to see the donation request.
PLEASE NOTE: If you cannot make it to either of the packet pickup times, please make an arrangement with your friend/neighbor to pick up the packets for you.
Can I get a refund?
We do not offer refunds if you are unable to participate in the event or the event is cancelled that day or weekend due to weather or otherwise, because significant race costs have already been incurred, and we cannot otherwise support this event as a public school.
Need more info?
We have more detailed information on our FAQs page.
There will be awards for top male and female runners, overall; top students and top teachers; and top runners in each age category.
