COURSE

There are plenty of toilets available at the start/finish and then located at every aid station on the course.

You must start at the time given to you, if you start at a different  than assigned you will be disqualified.

Each aid station will contain GU gels, GU chews, GU hydration, water, and basic first aid.

Aid stations will be positioned roughly every 2 miles on the course.

The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, Negative Split encourages a headphone-free environment during the race. We believe your race experience and those around you will be greatly enhanced by leaving the headphones at home or in the car.

Dogs are not allowed on the course. Out of respect for your fellow runners, we ask that you leave your pups at home during the race.

Strollers are only allowed on the 5k course.

McEuen Park is probably the best place to watch the race.  If you want to ride a bike out farther to watch runners. Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive is a great place to watch the marathon.  Riverstone also is a great place to watch the half marathon and full marathon.

RESULTS

Chip timing will be provided by Negative Split Event Timing. Results will be available immediately following your race at nsplit.com

REFUNDS/TRANSFERS

Sorry there are no refunds or deferments for this event.

Distance transfers and transfers from person to person must be down at least 1 month in advance.

COVID-19 UPDATES

We are allowing free transfers from any of the above events to another event for individuals that are not able to attend the newly scheduled date. All three of these events are top notch events and provide a wonderful participant experience.  We request that participants only switch events if they are unable to attend the newly scheduled date of the original event they registered for. Shirts, medals, and other items have already been ordered in excess for these events based on our early forecasts. If we have a large number of runners transferring from one event to another just based on personal preference it may strain the projected forecasts of shirts and medals. To transfer from one race to another email info@nsplit.com

If you are signed up for multiple events and transferring to a new event is not an option as indicated above, then we have also setup virtual event options where you can still participate remotely and be able to interact via social media and posting of your results to the “virtual” race. You will still be able to earn your shirt and medal! To select the virtual event option you will need to transfer into the virtual event on our race registration platform.  Follow these transfer instructions here: https://help.runsignup.com/support/solutions/articles/17000062922-transfer-to-another-event

If you are unable to attend any of the new event dates, then you still have the option to earn your medal and shirt by participating in the event virtually.  This feature still allows for interaction via social media and posting of your results. To select the virtual event option you will need to transfer into the virtual event on our race registration platform.  Follow these transfer instructions here: https://help.runsignup.com/support/solutions/articles/17000062922-transfer-to-another-event

At this time we are not offering refunds. This situation has been difficult and challenging for everyone. We sincerely wish that we were not confronted with having to change our events. Our organization is putting forth our best effort to make the most of this situation, turning lemons into lemonade. We are trying to provide multiple options for participants to still have a great experience. We believe in our running community and believe at the end of all this, we will need a reason to come together at these events and celebrate.  Negative Split has partnered with many community non-profits that help provide volunteers and resources to our events and we want to still be able to support these great causes. These three events are comprised of about $250,000 in expenses, most of which have already been paid for.  As much as we wish refunds were an option, they would likely sink the ship that supports so many community programs in our region.

You will still receive the merchandise you purchased at your event! We are also working on launching an online store for those of you that were looking forward to purchasing and trying on merchandise at our spring events. We will soon have the option to purchase online.

Due to the fast changes and all the moving parts planning these new event dates, we will not be able to offer a premium package at these new events. The price of the premium entry fee will be refunded since we will not be able to provide this on these new dates. We will send you a link to our online store in the near future if you still wish to purchase the premium gear without the rest of the experience items.
Participant safety is our first priority and we will be implementing several new measures to help make our events more safe for runners and spectators.
All three events will be held at their normally scheduled spring dates in the 2021 calendar year (unless some other world pandemic takes place). We anticipate opening registration for the 2021 events in September and October of this year.
