VIRTUAL RACE LOGISTICS – COVID STYLE

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Register here! Ultra Signup Page

WHEN – 

Now that this race is 100% virtual the race is yours to own and smash your previous times. I will accept any race proof submitted in December as timing proof but it must be submitted by 11:59pm on 12/15 to be counted and included in possible top award prizes.

In 2021 we will leave the on course records from 2019 in good standing but we will have a virtual top times in case we ever suffer another pandemic for a virtual race.

COVID IMPACTS:

I wanted to let people know that it is with a (sad heart), I will not be able to make this a live event this year with COVID impacting the permits and services required to put on this race.  I REALLY, kicked it into overdrive trying to manage the obstacles and needs to make this live….but, the Phasing in Washington won’t allow this.  It was a special year of 15 running, hopefully the 16th Annual Pigtails will be live and in person with you all.

Please email me at aprilgraves22@gmail.com Should you have additional questions. 

See FAQ below this section for more on each of these

  • ALL RACES WILL BE a “virtual only” race this year

  • Refund and Bib Transfer Information

  • Timing Submittal Requirements

  • Prize Drawings, Top winners of each race and Swag Information 

PRICING: ALL PRICING HAS BEEN REDUCED 

WHY?

I had initially set this race up without  COVID even on my radar.  As the months ticked by I had no idea that it would affect this race.  At the time I had projected budgets and I shared the cost projection on all races.  Since I am making the Half Marathon virtual.  It allows for a reduced cost to all.  There will be no more decreases in price if all events are made virtual.  Because the race has changed from one that any of us recognize and could entirely become virtual this year, I feel some discounts need to be established 

Registration for half marathon will adjust to:

Registrations for the 50K and Marathon will adjust to: IF THIS RACE GOES VIRTUAL FOR ALL THE 50K and Marathon participants WILL receive special additional swag for paying in more and not being able to be live.

REGISTRATION CUT OFF – 12/1 

For those that register after 11/20 your swag shipment may not arrive prior to 12/12.

WHEN AND WHERE WILL I GET MY SWAG?

  • Virtual Runners will have the items mailed prior to the race date. Mailing packages to the address on your registration during the week of 11/15/2020. For those registering after this date your package may be a little past the 12/12 arrival date

_______________________________________________________

BUT, I DON’T WANT TO RUN A VIRTUAL RACE OR I CHANGED MY MIND!! WHAT DO I DO?

REFUNDS

MARATHON AND 50K RUNNERS REFUNDS

  • 90% of your total registration will be refunded under the condition of how you answer questions during checkout on UltraSignup. 
  • These 90% refunds will be allowed for those runners that answer ‘NO’ to the question “Do you still want to participate in this race should it change to a virtual run?” This question will be asked to all 50K and Marathon runners during the checkout process. If the race is transferred to a 100% virtual event due to phasing guidelines those that answer “NO” will receive a refund and be removed from the registration list on 10/16/2020 so those on the waitlist have the ability to register.
  • If you change your mind prior to 10/15/2020 you can change your registration via UltraSignup to change the answer or email the director to do so for you
  • If you received a refund but want to run the virtual event after all, you will have to re-register.

Please do not ask me to change this policy 

Yes, there is an exception to every rule, if you had your thumbs torn off in a thumb war, got stuck in Antarctica with no cell reception or something along these lines…. I might consider it.  

My reasoning is not to be harsh, but fair to those that want to run – regardless of it being a virtual or live event.

HALF MARATHON REFUNDS 

  • No refunds will be allowed – You signed up for a virtual race if you cannot run it you may choose a bib transfer. 

___________________________________________

TIMING

VIRTUAL RACE TIMING–

Virtual runners will be required to submit proof of time within 72 hours of the “start” time of 9am 12/12/2020 so it can be added to ultrasignup and top male / female winners can be determined.
These times will be posted within 96 hours of the event
The TOP 3 male and female runners each race category will also receive a ceramic piggy bank sent after times are submitted to celebrate their win.

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY TIME?

Since top prizes will be awarded all times you will need to be sent to the RD within 48 hours (by 5pm 12/14)  and there must be proof of timing with the results submitted.  If no timing and proof is sent in to the RD, you will be placed DNS on the race results website.

In order to submit your results, please complete the race distance in one run/walk.

You need to be able to submit your results photo. If you are completing your run or walk outdoors, many types of apps and watches/devices will record your distance and time.

Wait what about the prize money for top performers?

The prize money is one of the reasons I am requiring PROOF of time for ALL races.  This will ensure a completely honest win for a runner that is beating these past Top Performers.

The top 3 Female and Top 3 Male runners in each race distance will receive a ceramic piggy bank celebrating that win. These will be mailed after all results are tallied and posted.  
Should Course Records be smashed – the money will be sent to the runner with their piggy bank after results have been tallied.

CURRENT COURSE RECORDS

Marathon:

Female: Marlene Farrell 3:02:10 (2012)

Male: Uli Steidl 2:31:26 (2012)

50K:

Female: Gina Slaby 3:40:58 (2017)

Male: Zach Gingerich 3:18:07 (2017)

BIB TRANSFERS 

  • Virtual Event Bib Transfers-  will be allowed via email to the RD and accepted on all race distances until 12/1/2020.  

After 12/1/2020  you may change the name of the person running your race so they can submit their time.  Swag will be mailed to all virtual runners the week of 11/15 so you will need to get the swag to your transferred runner.

  • Live Event Runners Bib Transfers – If this race is allowed to proceed – live transfers will be allowed through 12/7/2020 via UltraSignup or an email to the RD.

About the RD: Although this is the first race I will be directing, I have run over 100 marathons, 100 half marathons, multiple 50K’s, relays and 5K’s, and I like to celebrate my birthday with 100-200 mile solo races.  Constructive feedback will be well received.  Unnecessary criticism will be forgotten.

 

SPONSOR:  Hammer Nutrition

Once again we have been given the continued support from Hammer Nutrition.  They will be providing: ENDUROLYTES FIZZ® and  HAMMER GEL® for the start and aid locations, registrants will also receive these items in their bag at back pick-up
