We have tried to answer all of your questions on this page. If you have any other questions, email us at foleyfoundation5k@gmail.com


Are Walkers allowed?

YES! Walkers are welcome to participate in our event. All we ask is that you obey the rules of the course and walk no more than two people abreast so that others may pass easily. Walkers will start at the same time as runners but are advised, for safety reasons, to start their race at the back of the pack.

Can I get a refund if I register but don’t run?

No. We plan the race based on the number of registered runners, so once you have registered we cannot offer you a refund. Your charitable donation is very much appreciated.

If I can’t run after I have registered, can someone else use my number?

No. This drives any race director crazy, so please try to avoid this. If you really, really want to switch, you must contact us before the race. Never use someone else’s number in any road race – if there is an emergency, we will have no idea who you are!!

Can I reserve a shirt in a certain size?

When you check the box next to a t-shirt size on your registration form, you are not reserving a specific shirt; you are helping us plan how many shirts we need to order in each size. We make every effort to match your desires. If it is important that you get a shirt in your size, please come early. Pre-registered runners and walkers will receive a commemorative race shirt. Same day Registration may not get a shirt, it depends on our numbers. (You must pick up your shirt when you receive your bib. No shirts will be mailed out to local 5K entries.).
