Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I register for the Series?
A: 2017 Series Registration is now closed. Come back in September for the link to sign up for 2018!
Q: How much does it cost to sign up?
A: The cost to register for the entire 4 race series is just $114! This fee includes your entry to each of the 4 events and all of the gear and hoopla that comes along with them. The entry fee increases to $119 on February 12th, and then again to $124 March 1st!
Q. What is the Series finisher prize this year?
A: Separate from the finisher prizes you get at the individual Series races, all participants in the Sweet 16 Series will get a bonus prize. This year’s prize is a two hat combo pack. This awesome headgear will keep you looking fresh and running comfortably year round!
Q: What if I am unable to attend one of the 4 events in the Series?
A: If one of the dates doesn’t work with your schedule, you can still sign up for the Series and maintain eligibility for Series prizes by participating in that race virtually. You will still be able to collect your bib number, shirt, and packet for that event; the only difference is that you will run the 4 miles whenever and wherever is convenient for you. When you register for the Series, there will be a question for you to note the event you are unable to attend.
If something comes up at a later date, notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: How does the virtual option work?
A: Simply pick up your race packet as normal at packet pickup. Be sure to inform the volunteers at packet pickup that you are participating virtually so that you can collect your finisher medal (note: the CCVI Trolley Run does not give finisher medals). Then run or walk 4 miles whenever and wherever is convenient for you. Finally, email us the time it took you to complete the run, as well as any photos that would prove you completed it (i.e. map of your route, picture of your gps watch). Email us at email@example.com
Q: What if I’ve already signed up for one of the races in the Series?
A: Not a problem. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know which event(s) you have already registered for. Once we confirm your registration for those events, we’ll send you a coupon code that enables you to register for the Series at a discounted rate.
Q: When does Series registration close?
A: The Series registration stays open through the St Patrick’s Day Run. Be sure to sign up before the price increases (see question 2)!
Q: Are there prizes for Top Finishers?
A: All Series participants will receive a finisher’s prize for completing the 4 race series. Runners will be eligible for Overall and Age Group awards at each individual event. However, there are no Series awards for being fast.
Q: How do I get my Series participation prize?
A: Series prizes will be distributed at the last event, the Kansas City Zoo Run.
Q: Can I get a refund or transfer my registration?
A: No refunds will be given and no transfers will be allowed. You may elect to participate in one or more of the events virtually though (see Question 3).
