Celebrate the season with friends by creating a team! It’s easy as pumpkin pie:
1) The first person to sign up creates the team.
2) That person is the designated team captain. They will enter a team name and then finish their own registration.
3) Then, they can share the team name and password so others can join!
The sweetest part? Each team member will save $5 on their registration!
The team captain does not have to sign everyone up. Rather, each team member can sign up and pay for their own registration, all while still receiving $5 off!
Absolutely! In fact, about 1/3 off all participants choose to walk the course. You’ll have a bunch of support and we’ll be waiting for you at the finish line to cheer you on!

The official Participant Guide will be emailed to all registrants the week of the race. It will have everything you need to know to ensure the best fall morning possible!
Parking is complimentary and held at the orchard, just steps away from the start line. Please help minimize traffic by carpooling with a friend if possible.
We suggest arriving at least an hour prior to your wave start time. For example, if you signed up for the 9:20AM wave, you should arrive no later than 8:20AM.
You have two options to receive your packet:
Friday Night: Swing by the orchard the night before the race from 4-6PM to grab your packet. This will help avoid any race day lines and make race morning even easier!
Race Day: Race day packet pick-up will be held at the orchard beginning at 7AM. If waiting until race morning, we suggest arriving at least an hour prior to your wave start time.
During registration, you’ll need to choose a wave. Waves are small groups and have designated start times which are spaced out every ten minutes beginning at 9:00AM and ending at 9:50AM.
Not sure what wave is best for you? No worries! We suggest choosing one now as you can always edit it later. Waves are limited in size, so signing up today provides the best choice in wave start time!

You receive chip timing and free digital photos as part of your registration. They’ll be posted here shortly after you cross the finish line!
