1. Who can participate?
The more the merrier! A company may enter an unlimited number of runners, walkers and joggers, from 1 person to 5000! All scoring participants must be full-time and employed by the participating company at least three months prior to race day. Part-time employees, family members and friends, as well as those under 18 may also participate and will count towards the participation number but are not eligible for individual or team awards. Employment and other criteria are subject to verification by the Race Committee. Because of insurance restrictions, strollers, animals, baby joggers and rollerblades are not allowed on the racecourse. NOTE: you DO NOT need to be member of Kaiser Permanente to participate.
2. I walk. Can I participate?
Yes! Over 50% of event participants will be walkers. For the safety of all participants, runners and walkers will be directed to separate start areas. Watch for signs to the walker start lineup!
3. How do I get my company signed up?
Go to our Registration Page. You can sign up online or offline. We highly recommend signing up everyone online. If you sign up online, you (or the team captain) must first register your company. For instructions on Team Setup Click Here.
4. How much does it cost to participate?
Early = $32 per person through August 7 at NOON/12:00 PM EST
Late = $37 per person August 7 at NOON/12:00 PM EST – September 1, 2017, NOON/12:00 PM EST. There is no company registration fee.
5. Do any charities benefit from the race?
6. I run pretty fast. How can I get to the front of the starting line?
Again this year we will have the Elite Runners Section for runners 6:00 per mile or faster (men) or 7:00 per mile or faster (women). This area will again be at the very front of the start line. There will be a Master’s Division for those 40 and over with time documentation of Master’s Men (6:15 per mile) and Master’s Women (7:15 per mile).
All Elite athletes must submit official 5K/10K race documentation from a 2016-2017 certified course to Galloway Productions at firstname.lastname@example.org by August 7 at NOON/12:00 PM EST. NO EXCEPTIONS. Runners should indicate this on their registration form. All Elite Runners will receive a special bib number (call 404-843-8727 with questions).
A monitored Seeded section will be set up immediately behind the Elite Runner Area. Team captains will be responsible for giving a special entry pass to any runner who expects to run 8:00 or faster per mile. Runners must register by August 7 at NOON/12:00 PM EST, listing a qualifying 2016-2017 race time. Sorry, no exceptions. Be in place by 6:30 PM for the best position.
7. May I bring my children?
All participants under 18 must have a parent or guardian signature. Other considerations: the course is fairly hilly, and it is usually very warm, so we ask that children under 13 not attend. Due to insurance restrictions, baby joggers, strollers, rollerblades and animals are not allowed.
We do sympathize with life’s uncertainties, but we are unable to offer refunds, deferrals or transfers. When you register you have 15 minutes to clear your transaction without being charged after the form is submitted. After the 15 minutes there will be no refunds.
9. Where can I tell my company members to meet?
It’s a good idea to set up a time and place to meet prior to arriving at the race site. You will also want to know where to meet your team after the race.
10. Where can I park?
Parking will be in the yellow, red and gold lots. Parking is $10 a car, but you MUST **CLICK HERE to pre-purchase your parking pass prior to 48 hours before the event using access code KP2017. You can still arrive on race day without a pre-purchased pass, but the parking fee will be higher.
11. How can I continue to get updates about the event?
Send your email address to email@example.com and ask us to put you on the Kaiser Permanente Corporate Run/Walk email list.
