Registration, Packet Pickup, General race Questions

Below is a list of frequently asked questions regarding registration and packet pickup:

How can I register for this race?

You may register either online or on race day at the registration kiosk. For MAIL IN registration, select check/cash and enter your registration information. Print this and mail in with your check. We will be accepting race day registrations. However, this race sells out every year! Waiting till race day is a gamble.

Can I pickup a packet for a friend or family member?


Are credit cards accepted at packet pickup?

Yes, all form of payment are accepted.

When and where is packet pickup?

Packet pickup will be held on-site race evening from 8-8:45pm.

Am I guaranteed a race shirt?

Every participant is guaranteed a shirt. Everyone registered prior to June 7th will have the shirt size they selected during online registration. Packet pickup and same day registrants will receive a shirt on a first-come, first-serve basis. We do our best to get everyone the size they want.

What if I need to exchange for a different shirt size?

After the race, you can exchange your shirt from the remaining sizes available.


This race is chip timed, so your laps will begin when you cross the starting line. If you are changing to a shorter hourly event or if you want to "upgrade" your distance to a longer hourly wave, send us an email info@tortoiseandthehareracing.com. ONCE THE RACE BEGINS YOU MAY NOT CHANGE EVENTS. This means if you are a 6hr runner and stop at 3hrs, your results will be ranked in the 6hr event.


Pacers are allowed but must sign a waiver and bring their own fuel.

What type of timing is being used?

TATHR Event Timing will be timing the event. We will use our new, state of the art MyLaps Bibtag Timing System. Your timing chip will be on the back of your racing number bib. Participants must where their number on the FRONT of their outer most garment. Participants must wear a race number bib to get an official time and be included in the results.

Where can I find results after the race?

Results will be posted here on the race website online and can be found by scanning the QR code on your bib. You may also enter the Results Kiosk after the race and type in your bib number on one of the laptops to receive a print out of your time and pace.

All Hourly runners who finish get a FLASK Finishers Medal!!
