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. Do any charities benefit from the race?
5. 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 online 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.
7. 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. Let us know if we can assist you.
8. How can I continue to get updates about the event?
Send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask us to put you on the Kaiser Permanente Corporate Run/Walk email list.
