Do I have to run?
No, you can run, walk, skip, whatever! We just want you to come out and have fun!

There are both individual and team options. If you register as an individual and decide to join a team later, we can work with you and have your team captain add you to their team.
How many people do I need to start a team?
You need a minimum of 5 participants to create a team. The more members of your team the merrier!
Is fundraising mandatory?

Can I just make a donation to support our youth and not participate in the actual event?
Of course, we hope you come out to join the fun, but we are truly appreciative of all support! Donations can be made to the general event or credited towards a specific participant or team. There will actually be “awards” related to both participants and teams collecting donations.
