What’s required to join a race?
You must be at least 16 years old, complete a registration and agree to these terms.
Can I change the distance that I’m running?
No. Registering to one distance cannot be changed during the process prior to race.
Team members cannot be changed (in team and relay races).
Can you refund my participation, as I’m unable to join?
We can’t. As in concerts, every sports event is tied with expenses that cannot be restored to us if you don’t participate.
Can I register on spot?
No. Our races are often visited by more than 500 people, which makes it impossible to give out packages or register on spot.
My company wants to join a race, what should I do?
That’s great! Just drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with info how many people would join and invoice information. We have eased up the process for companies registering where we will issue you a promo code and an invoice for registration. You can share the code with colleagues and they’ll skip the payment part and register themselves easily.
Can I give my race number to someone else?
No. Every registration is connected with your name, age, sex and rank. The bib numbers are sent to a timing company with your data. If another person races instead of you, their time will be present in the rankings with your name. That isn’t the truth and we want to avoid that. We often draw prizes from our sponsors using the race numbers, so it won’t be fair if a name that is not present on spot wins the prize.
Can I get my stuff immediately prior to the race?
It takes about 2 minutes to register a participant and if we’re to register 500+ participants before the start, that wouldn’t be possible. That’s why we have a registration day or days prior to the race where we will give you your stuff. The pure logistics of moving start packages from one place to another takes a lot of effort, and we want to focus on the race.
Can I pay in cash?
No, we do not accept cash.
Why the packages are on spot X?
We’re trying to offer the best available spot with plenty of space to collect your items. Usually it is our sponsor’s store or office with a chance to visit the store and get extra items from the sponsor.
Can I run with my son/daughter, he/she is 5–16 years old?
There are risks in every race, risks are higher with children. We can’t stop you but you shouldn’t leave your child unattended on the race course.
Can I bring/run with my dog, he’s very nice and won’t be any trouble?
No. People are afraid of dogs there could be a leash that might make someone stumble or interfere with their best results.
What are the requirements for participating in Business Run?
All participants must have working contract with the company whose team they participate in. The organizers have the right to disqualify any team whose runners aren’t working in the company that enrolled them in the team.
