How do we sign up?
Team registration: You may register with a team captain only and then fill in the team as teammates join. Teammates join using your team name/code If a teammate gets hurt or otherwise drops out, the team captain must go onto raceplanner.com and delete the dropped runner from the roster to make room for the new runner.
Once the team captain registers, then all of the teammates need to also register as team members. Of course, there is no additional cost for them to do that. They must do this before registration closes on September 23.
No race day registration. Please note that this is a wave start event. Waves of 20 runners maximum will start every 15 minutes beginning at 7:30 AM and continuing until 8:30 AM. The earlier you register, the more likely you are to get the start time you want!
Divisions and Categories
We will be timing the Rock the Creek Relay, but it’s not like a 10K or a marathon. There are intersections, red lights, etc. These things will affect all teams, though in different ways. We will be keeping times based on start time and finish time. No other factors will be taken into account. If you are held up by a traffic light, etc., it’s just part of the event. No whining, no appealing. This is a fun event, not a particularly competitive one!
So, that being said, here are the categories for which we’ll be giving awards:
- First male team (all men)
- First female team (all women)
- First mixed team (Mixed teams can have 4 men or 4 women and 2 men/women or 3 of each)
- First male ultra team (3 or fewer members)
- First female ultra team (3 or fewer members)
- First mixed ultra team (3 or fewer members)
What if YOU need to cancel? Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation message from RacePlanner. That message will contain the steps you need to take to cancel your registration. If you can’t locate it, please email us and we will help you.
Sorry but no refunds. We make our decisions related to expenditures based upon our registrations at given points in time. If we were to allow people to register and then cancel at will, we’d have no sense of our financial position. If you do need to cancel, we will work with you on a 50% reduction in the registration fee for the following year
What if WE need to cancel? If a significant event occurs on race weekend and federal, state or local officials determine that it is unsafe for us to hold the relay, we will have no choice but to cancel it. Notification of cancellation will occur through e-mails to all team captains and through updates to the Rock the Creek Relay website and Facebook page. We will do our best to defer all registrations to the following year.
Based on the complexity of executing this event, the need for planned public service support, permit arrangements, etc., it would simply not be possible to plan a “rain date”. In addition, a significant percentage of the expenses are assumed in the months ahead of race weekend. As a result, we are not in a position to offer refunds under these circumstances. But, we’re also sympathetic to the fact that you will have spent money and gotten nothing in return, so we will try to work out a fair discount for the following year that enables us to still put on a very high quality event and not bankrupt the company!
We welcome you and certainly assume everything will go off without a hitch!
