Can kids run or walk?
Children are welcome! The fee is the same for kids as for adults.
Can I run with my pet?
Pets are welcome! Please be thoughtful and clean up after your pet.
Can I get a refund if I don't run?
Sorry! Because our run benefits our non-profit clinic, we're not able to issue refunds.
What happens if there's bad weather?
The run will go on rain, snow, or shine. We will cancel the event in the case of lightening. Sorry, but if the run is canceled, we are not able to issue refunds.
Where do the proceeds of this run go?
All proceeds help fund our two pro-bono clinics, the SAY Physical Therapy clinic and the Diabetes Education and Wellness clinic.
Is the run timed, and can I get my time?
Race results will be up by 10 days after the run, online at www.RFEventServices.com. Results can be emailed to you if you provide an email address during pre-registration.
Since the run is a Halloween race, can I wear a costume?
Yes! Costumes are allowed, but please keep them family-friendly! There will be a costume contest, and the best costume will win a trophy. You can also just wear typical exercise apparel if you prefer, since costumes aren't required.
Where can I find photos of the run?
Photos will be available on our website within a few days of the run. Our photo services are donated so feel free to share and keep images from the race!
Where is the course location?
The course is on the Wayne State Campus and begins in Gullen Mall.
How will the course be marked?
There will be volunteers with signs marking the course, and the course will also be chalked. Course maps will be available at the registration table on Saturday morning.
