*The Melissa's Road Race will offer Tiered Pricing based on registration spot inventory, or a registration deadline date - whichever comes first. Entries at each tier are limited and once the designated number of entry spots in the block is sold out (or the price period expires), the price will increase. Athletes who take advantage of early registration will receive the best entry rates.

Need To Transfer To A Different Distance?
*Race transfers will not be allowed on race morning.
*If you choose to run in a different distance, please be sure to officially transfer to that distance with us by September 10th. If you run in a different distance, you will be disqualified, and more importantly cause a number of significant problems with our timing, results, and course safety. 

Race Bib Pick-Up
Avoid race day line-ups and pick up your race bib ahead of time.
Race Bib Pick-Up Times & Locations - TBA
Note: Event participant shirts for all participants are distributed on race morning on site

What You Need for Race Bib Pick-Up
You will need photo ID to pick up your Race Bib at any of the locations.

Picking Up Race Bibs for Other Participants
You are permitted to pick up Race Bibs for other participants provided you are in the event yourself and are picking up your race bib at the same time.  You will be required to sign a proxy form stating that you have permission to pick up the race bib and that the race bib will be given only to the intended registrant.

Selling or Giving your Race Bib to Someone Else
Selling your race bib, or having another person use your bib in the event is strictly prohibited.  This act may seem good intentioned but has many negative implications to the organizers and participants including liability, timing, results, awards and many other factors.  Race bibs will only be given out to those who have registered for the event.  If a registrant sells or gives away their race bib to another participant, they will not be allowed to participate in future events.
