2 - How does registration work?
NEW THIS YEAR!! We will be doing online registration through RunSignUp, a secure way to get you
and your family entered into the race. CLICK HERE to be taken to our registration page. It's our way
of being environmentally friendly instead of sending out 1000's of paper entries.
If you're old school and still want to print/mail a form, you can print off the entry form by
After then, runners must register the morning of the race up to 7:30am. The registration booth will be on
the North Side (closest to St. Paul's Church) of City Hall Park. Participants MUST REGISTER NO LATER
THAN 7:30AM THE MORNING OF THE RACE!!!
3 - Is there an early packet pick-up?
We will have packets available for pick-up Friday night at St. Paul's Church from 5:30-7:00pm. You
may also pick-up your packet Saturday morning at the race.
4 - What's the course like?
Links to both courses are located on the Course page.
5 - Am I guaranteed a shirt?
YES!! Unlike some races where there are a limited number of shirts, we have a policy that all runners will receive a shirt. Pre-registered runners are guaranteed to get their shirt race-day; those who register late MAY have theirs sent to them if none are available race-day - all runners WILL get a shirt, however!!
6 - It's hot in August. Will there be water on the course?
Absolutely!! Each mile will have a water stop with plenty of liquids.
7 - I plan on walking the 6-mile race - is there a time limit for walkers?
YES. If you are wishing to walk the race, that is fine. But the 6-mile course will close promptly at 9:45 (approximately 17 min/mile pace). If you feel that you need more time, we'll make it work - just shoot us an email and we'll figure it out.
8 - Will there be awards?
We will be giving out awards for the top 3 finishers in each category listed on the registration form. The overall winners (male and female) of the 2mi and 6mi races will also receive a trophy. Back by popular demand will be the Tell City Pretzel tins!! All kid participants in the Kids' Fun Run will receive participation ribbons.
