Can I change my mind?

Depends on what you want. Feel free to change your breakfast from a bagel to a muffin. We have no problem with that. If you would like to change your race i.e. from the 10k run to the 5k then please email the race director at belpetshow@gmail.com.There is no cost if you email the RD by noon on September 13th. There is a small fee of $632.00 if you wait until race day. Use the secret phase, "Elvis Lives" to get a $622 discount. Final cost $10. 


What happens if I run the wrong race?

You will be disqualified. Please don't do it.


Can I run or walk your course since it is on public property?

That is called banditting and it is a big no-no in the race world. You will be branded a bandit and reported to all Race Directors in a 100 mile radius.  


Can I bring my dog? 

We don't like to use the "D" word, and prefer to use Canine American.  Well-behaved Canine Americans with responsible owners attached to leashes that do not interfere with the race, or participants are welcome. Sorry Cats! 

Can I get a refund or transfer a registration to another person?

No and No! What part of "All Sales are final" do you not understand? 

What about inclement weather? 

We are a rain or shine event. If there is a weather event or air quality issue that would make participation dangerous, we will keep registrant updated on the status of the event. 

Can I qualify for the Boston Marathon at this event?

If you have to ask, then no. 


I didn't get registered in time to be guaranteed a t-shirt and I really want one!

Do not despair. Our RD understands that life happens and things just don't get check off the "to-do list" as quickly as one hopes. She orders extra t-shirts, but it's first come first serve, so be sure to come early to get your choice of style and size. 


Are baby strollers/joggers allowed?

Yes, as long as the baby stroller/jogger does not interfere with the safety and enjoyment of other participants. Please drive carefully!



Is this course wheelchair friendly? 

Yes, however this is an outdoor event and there is a portion on both courses that cross railroad tracks. If you are in a wheelchair please send the RD an email at belpetshow@gmail.com to ensure there is an attendant at the railroad crossings to make sure that you safely get across the tracks. All wheel chairs must be powered by your arms. Electric wheel chairs or electric shooters are welcome to participate but will not be timed.
