FAQsAnswers to all your burning questions...
So how goes the hill training? When you cross the finish line, you will not only have done something worthwhile for your health and your ego (we know who you are), you will have also helped to raise funds for the “Be the Match Registry”, operated by the National Marrow Donor Program, as well as the Organ Donation Registry, operated by Donate Life Texas. Both are nonprofit, life-saving organization. You will be able to join the Marrow Donor Registry at any point throughout the weekend if you are between the ages of 18-44 and in general good health (We are betting you are…), providing you the opportunity to give the greatest gift of all, a second chance of life for a desperately ill cancer or blood disorder patient.
You have worked hard to get here. We want your race day experience to be a memorable one, and we are doing everything we can to make that happen!
See you on the Bridge!

What about timing?
5K – Chip Timed by Redemption Racing from San Antonio. Love those guys!
Sunday races – your chip timer will be a disposable one that will be on the back of your bib. So, make sure and keep your bib on – NO CHIP – NO TIME!!!!

Roads are not closed to traffic along the majority of the route; be aware of your surroundings. Don’t be ‘that guy’…
Please remember to thank our volunteers, especially if they are dressed like angels or wearing belly dancing costumes in 23 degree weather!!
When is the 5K?
Are bib transfers allowed?
Can I change race categories?
Don’t wanna dance with the one you came with? One more beauty of a small race – we can accommodate you and transfer you to a different category. We understand your training and injury level affect your race choice (been there, done that). You may change races online yourself for a $10 fee until race weekend; after that transfers can be done at the registration table at the Packet Pickup area for a $10 fee. Seriously, make up your mind, pull the trigger, and make your changes before race weekend, as Nancy and Debbie cannot handle the stress. We are delicate this way.
Can I change to another race category after I have registered?
Yes, you can change to another race category for a $10 fee through race weekend. Transfers on race weekend must be done in person at the registration desk. Before race weekend, transfers may be done online at Active.com.
Can I get a refund?
What do you use for timing?
Additionally, all relay members must touch each other to hand off the timing system. You alone should decide how to do it based on your personal relationship with your relay team members. High five, handshake, kiss, or something we cannot say online. Only you know how well you know your teammates…
