Bib News:

*You number goes on the front, NOT the back!!!

* If you have multiple members of a family participating, you must take special care to make sure you are not wearing some other family member's bib. Verify the name/age on your bib when you receive it and let someone know at pre-registration know if a correction is required. 

*If you have kids participating and/or are a first time runners, do NOT tear off your tag. 


Personal Items: Please DO NOT bring anything to the race you can not leave in your car or with another individual to be personally held while you are participating. The weather looks beautiful and none of this is possible without you. Please encourage your friends and family to participate and come out to see you. Thank you


Weather Forecast: This is a rain or shine fundraiser. As such, there are no refunds. The center appreciates your support. In the event of inclement weather, the race will be called by 8:45am.  Weather permitting, Elmwood Park Zoo has offered free entry into the zoo with your bib as the admission. We are praying there is no inclement weather.


First Time Runners: Congratulations! You've made it this far. We will cheer you on every step of the well. You got Sole!


Let's reach more Soles: Continue to encourage your family and friends to participate or come to cheer you on. Although the online registration ended Wednesday night we are accepting day of race registrations right until the start of the Race/Walk.
