Event Day & Location
What time should I arrive?
You will need to arrive 60-90 minutes prior to your registered wave time. First wave is at 8am and they start every 15 minutes.
What should I
A valid ID
Your self! You must be present at the event to pick up your registration packet
Although Fido may want to join the fun, animals (with the exception of service dogs) are not allowed, so please leave all pets at home for the run.
Will there be a photographer?
We will have photographers on site taking pictures that day, so be sure to secure your bib on the front of your shirt so we can identify you in your pictures. Photos will be available online on Thursday or Friday after your event date.
Are spectators allowed and is there a charge?
There is no charge for spectators (does not apply to parking fees). They will be able to see the start and finish areas plus several, but not the whole course.
I left something behind, is there a lost and found?
We do have a lost and found at each of our events so if you misplaced something you can check at the event to see if it was turned in. After the run, if there are any unclaimed items, we will hold on to them. Please contact email@example.com if you misplaced something at our event.
What do I get with my registration fee?
In addition to helping our kids in Hallsville, your registration fee entitles you to a Giddy Up and Go multi-color t-shirt, some snacks, really cool prizes, and other stuff like music and entertainment.
How much is the registration fee?
Registration fees vary and increase as the run date approaches. Please see [click here] for the current registration rates.
When is the
latest I can register?
Registration will be open online until noon the Thursday before your event and available on-site the day of the event, but remember to sign up before the price increases!
I can no longer participate, can I get a refund?
We have a strict no refund policy and refunds will not be issued under any circumstances. If you are simply unable to make it, you may opt to transfer your registration to a friend. Then again, it is for charity.
I am not in the best of shape, can I still participate?
Absolutely. The Giddy Up and Go 5k is non-competitive and will not be timed (though there will be a timer), so there is no need to hustle to get through the course. We do recommend some light cardio a couple times per week paired with some upper body strengthening to help you get up and over the obstacles. However, you’ll have the option to bypass any obstacle you’re not comfortable tackling.
What is the minimum age to participate?
Anyone is welcomed to run. Anyone under the age of 14 will need to have a parent or guardian accompany them to packet pick-up the day of the event. The parent or guardian must sign the waiver at packet pick-up and online during the registration process for any minor.
