Frequently Asked Questions


Q: How do I participate in a race?
A: Registration is through and you can choose between a Local Event or the "On Your Own" option.

Q: Are your races timed and where are the results posted?
A: Yes, we chip time our races and post the results on

Q: Do you have Age Group awards?

A: Yes for the local events only, where finish times can be validated. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place is awarded in each group. We use the following categories for both men and women: 09 & Under, 10-12, 13-17, 18-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 & Over.

Q: What do you mean by "On Your Own" option?

A: It is a virtual race that you complete alone but also with other people in different locations. Some people prefer to run alone or with friends, to avoid the pressure of large crowds or high registration fees, support a charity and also earn medals for themselves. It's great for small groups or remote areas without many races to choose from!

Q: How does the "On Your Own" option work? 

  1. Sign up for a race to order your race packet. We mail it out right away!
  2. Set a date and pick your own course to run/walk. You are in charge of how you earn your medal!
  3. Record your finish time with a simple watch or running app on your phone.
  4. Celebrate your victory! Wear your medal with pride, you earned it!
  5. Report your finishing time and share your story in the Facebook group or the Facebook event page.
  6. Sign up for the next race and tell your friends about us!

Q: Where does the money go?

A: Each month, we donate a portion of the proceeds from every race, directly to Team Red White and Blue or another charity. For our other special event fundraisers, we usually donate 30-40% from each registration to the charity. We publish an Accountability Report on our Facebook page monthly, when each donation is completed.

Q: Do you ship Internationally or to Canada?

A: Yes, shipping does cost us more so we have provided options to make it easy to add the extra shipping charge through PayPal, depending on where you need it sent. NOTE: We only collect one extra shipping fee for every 2 medals ordered, so please take advantage and double up on your race registrations!

Disclaimer: By signing up to run with us, you are automatically agreeing to run at your own risk! This includes both the local races offered at Road Runner Sports and virtual events. Be alert, obey traffic laws and stay safe!
