This event is a school fundraiser that is completely volunteer-run. While we appreciate that schedules change and things come up, we have a strict, no-refund policy for those registrants who find themselves unable to participate on race day. Even if you aren’t sure you can participate, you can register to support Chamblee Middle School anyway! There will be an option to register as a “phantom runner”, whereby you will be still eligible to receive all of our race swag, even if you do not plan to run. All registrants will need to pick up their race bag and t-shirt at Keswick Park on April 26 or the morning of the event. There will not be an option to claim these items after race day, and any unclaimed items (bags, t shirts, giveaways) by the end of the event on Saturday will be forfeited.
Results will be posted at the end of the event. Results will also be posted to our website and made available via text for runners who sign up for text alerts. Awards will be provided to the top 3 male and female winners, along with winners from each age group by gender. Only participants who run with a timing chip and complete the full course will be eligible for awards.
