Race Entry Form 2017 (Available soon)

FOR THE SAFETY OF EVERYONE
For the safety of all participants, we discourage rollerblades, roller skates and pets from this event. Thank you for your cooperation.

THIS EVENT WILL OCCUR RAIN OR SHINE!
We reserve the right to cancel in extreme circumstances. In that event, there will be no refunds: rather, your entry fee will be used as a donation to the Komen NEPA Race for the Cure®.

COMPETITIVE RUN INFORMATION
All competitive runners must be registered for the 5K run and wear a Race bib and timing-chip to be eligible for placement. The Race course is certified. Race results will be available online after the Race.  


REGISTRATION FEE
Registration fee includes a 2017 Race T-shirt and bib for the first 4,000 participants. Virtual participants will receive Race T-shirt only. See Virtual participant description below for more details. We do our best to accommodate sizes but cannot guarantee requests.

VIRTUAL PARTICIPANT
Can’t make it to the Race or simply prefer to sleep in instead of lacing your running shoes? This is the event for you. Register as a Virtual participant for $25 and receive a Race t-shirt. Please note: A Race number and bib will not be given, so you will not be permitted on the Race course. 

TEAM INFORMATION
Groups of 10 or more are invited to register as a Team. Each team member must submit a complete and signed registration form to the Team Captain. Komen NEPA has made it easy and fun to organize a team! Any type of group is eligible. There is no additional charge to register a team or register as a team member. Your team members don’t have to participate in the same event on Race day either; team members can choose to walk or run the 5K. Don’t forget, we recognize the largest teams by number of members in the following team categories: Corporate, Community (families & friends), School and Healthcare.

FUNDRAISE
If you want to make an impact in your community, registering for the Race is just your first step; the second and most crucial step is fundraising. Create an online fundraising page through your Race Fundraising Center or use our Pledge Form to collect donations. Ask your friends, family members or co-workers for a donation in support of your participation in the 2017 Race.


Special recognition and awards will be given to ONE individual and ONE team for raising the most funds for the event.

SURVIVORS
Breast cancer survivors who register for the Race and wish to be recognized will receive a complimentary pink T-shirt or a gray survivor T-shirt for male survivors. All registered breast cancer survivors and one (1) guest are invited to attend the Celebration of Hope Breakfast in the tent on Spruce Street starting at 7 a.m.


Join in the Celebration of Hope and show your support for all breast cancer Warriors as they gather together at the Federal Building at 7:45 a.m. and commence with a Parade of Pink to the Race start line.

REMEMBRANCE AND CELEBRATION
We invite participants to recognize those who have been touched by breast cancer. “In Memory of” and “In Celebration of” back signs for all Race participants will be located at Race Registration.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
The success of our Race depends on the support of our volunteers. New and returning volunteers are encouraged to get involved. For more information about all volunteer opportunities, please contact Roseann Brutico at rbrutico@aol.com
