Please note: A Race number and bib will not be given, so you will not be permitted on the Race course.

RACE DAY T-SHIRT PICKUP

If you do not claim your t-shirt by Friday September 29, 2017 at the Komen office, it will be considered a donation back to the organization.

TEAM INFORMATION
Groups of 10 or more are invited to register as a Team. Each member of the team must submit a completed and signed registration form to the Team Captain. We’ve made it easy and fun to organize a team! Any type of group is eligible, and there are no extra fees involved. The same registration costs apply when you’re registering as part of a team, and team members don’t have to register under the same category (i.e., walker, runner, virtual, youth). You can even have an all virtual team!   Don’t forget, we recognize the largest teams by number of members in the following team categories: Corporate, Community (families & friends), School and Healthcare.
