    Is the Custom Commemorative Medal in addition to the finisher medal for the half marathon?

      The custom medal adds your name to the finisher medal.

    Can I run the Half Marathon with my son in his BOB Stroller? I'm an avid runner logging 30-40 miles a week and have run several events with him including Revenge of the Penguins 20miler.

      If you believe you can safely run with him along side other runners, then I am fine with it... and due to the fact you have in another race, then we should be all good to go!

    Hello! What material are the shirts for the 1/2 marathon (cotton or moisture-wicking tech fabric)? Long or short sleeve? Color? Thanx!

      They will be long-sleeve cotton grey shirts.

    Hi there - My husband and I are considering signing up for the half but wanted to know how difficult the course is. Thanks!

    • 9 days ago   /   ReplyTravis Bishop

      It is a tough, scenic course... it has some hills in it.

    • 9 days ago   /   ReplyPreethi

      Thanks for the info. We just ran Richmond last weekend. Do you have any idea how it compares in terms of difficulty? Do you think it would be possible to get a PR on this course? Thank you for the info!

      I ran the Richmond Marathon last weekend.. If the half is anything like the full (fairly flat) I don't think you'd PR on this..

      I ordered a Large shirt when I thought they were short sleeve. Will I be able to trade it in for a XXL?

  • 5 days ago   /   ReplyJames Tolson

    do we receive a t-shirts for the 5k as well?

    • 4 days ago   /   ReplyTravis Bishop

      If we have an extra XXL then ofcourse!

    • 4 days ago   /   ReplyTravis Bishop

      The t-shirt that you can purchase is an additional dri-fit shirt. Otherwise, you receive an event shirt.
