Race FAQs



Registration includes finisher shirt, blingin’ medal, swag bag, and a race experience of a lifetime. Due to the logistics of timing, no race day registration will be accepted. Shirts are only guaranteed for participants registering more than 10 days before the race. We always order extra shirts, but they are on a first come first serve basis for those registering less than 10 days before.

Race Cost

If Kim Kardashian can break the internet, we are going to give it our best try!  We are blowing out registrations by pricing tiers for 2019.  Tier 1 pricing will increase by $1 with each person registered (1st person = $1, 5th person =$5, 10th person = $10, 15th person = $15… until the end of the tier). Tier 1 pricing will be gone once the tier’s price cap has been reached (see below). Each pricing tier is set up to only allow a certain number of participants at that tier. We have set these numbers based on historical pricing data. With that said, it is in your best interest to sign up sooner than later!
