PRIDE RUN ST. PETE
THINGS TO KNOW
Skateboards, skates, bicycles, wagons, and the like are not allowed. Pets are also not permitted.
Running chairs, handcycles, sports wheelchairs, walkers, canes, and sports strollers are allowed. When planning to use a running chair, handcycle, sports wheelchair, walker, cane, or sports stroller, select it during race registration or add it later through change requests
Register using a cell phone number, not a landline, and your email address to receive notifications on race day and a participant feedback survey.
Validate the information in your registration confirmation at the time of receipt and on the results monitors on race day or online immediately following your completion of the race paying particular attention to gender, birth date, age group division, and the spelling of your name.
Always make sure your information is accurate, including taking steps to transfer your race entry to someone else when needed.
Making mistakes during registration, including registering other participants with inaccurate information, cause errors on race day unless you take the necessary steps to identify and correct them.
Participating with inaccurate information in your race entry, such as gender and birth date, or participating as someone else, affects everyone, not just you.
To correct a discrepancy in your race entry or transfer it, go to change requests, or you can request changes onsite during pre-packet pickup and registration or on race day during packet pickup and registration.
If you identify a discrepancy in your race entry upon completing the race, go to the timing station near the finish line to have it reviewed for correction. If results are closed, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting review.
Correctly wearing your bib
Correctly wearing your bib will help ensure accurate reads as you cross timing points and ultimately provide a recordable timing result. It will also help make sure a race crew member does not stop you while on the course due to not correctly displaying your bib.
Always place your bib on your front torso unobstructed. Alternatively, it is okay to attach your bib to an upper thigh facing forward. Please do not put it anywhere on your backside or where it is hidden.
Do not bend the timing chip or remove the foam tape on the backside of the bib covering the timing chip. The foam tape, in addition to helping ensure timing chip reads, also helps prevent moisture from getting onto the timing chip from sweat or rain. Keep your bib away from liquid.
If needed, safety pins are available at onsite registration to help you attach your bib to your clothing.
You may not participate in any race category where you are not registered. View change requests for details and to complete transfer request.
Deactivating your bib
If you have secured your bib, have it with you on race day, and have decided not to participate, make sure you have gone to the timing station to have the bib deactivated. Not doing so can cause your bib to read, placing you into race results as participating in error and affect the result placements and awards of those who did the race. Similarly, please do the same for anyone else’s bib you have when they are not participating.
If you start the race and do not complete the full course, make sure you go to the timing station to have your bib deactivated. Not doing this can place you into race results in error and affect the result placements and awards of those who did complete the race.
Though we do our best to forecast sizes of the race shirts, they are not guaranteed. If you do not receive the shirt size you want, you can go to registration immediately following the race to determine whether or not an exchange is possible. You must not wear the shirt you receive if you want to attempt an exchange after running.
When offered, swag bags are available while supplies last. Swag bags have a mixture of goodies inside from multiple sources. Your registration does not guarantee Swag, and content may vary from bag-to-bag.
An EMT will be standing by near the start, finish, and expo. A first aid kit will also be available for minor incidents. If you or someone you are observing needs medical assistance, please notify a race crew member. If you believe you or someone else may be experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911 immediately and inform a race crew member.
Water stations are approximately every 1.5 miles to 2.0 miles. Water will also be available at the start and finish.
Park bathrooms will be available near the start, finish, and expo. The location can be viewed on the course maps under course information.
This event does not offer a bag check service. Please plan the storing of any personal items accordingly.
Participant food & beverage
While supplies last, light refreshments will be available to 5K participants at the refreshment table before and after the 5K race.
