Rules

Please line up at the start according to your pace. Elite runners will be positioned at the front with runners lining up behind them by mile pace. Please look for the pace signs posted along the start chute to guide your position. Please do not line up ahead of your pace time! This is chip timed so your time will officially begin when you cross the timing mat at the start line. Top 3 overall are on gun time. Take extra caution as you start the race!

Cones on the Roadways
ALWAYS stay inside right of the cones on the roadways, unless signs or chalk indicate otherwise. Straying outside of the defined cone line is dangerous and could result in disqualification.
Roller Blades, Skateboards, Animals & Bicycles
NO roller blades, skateboards, animals or bicycles on course without permission. Baby strollers designed for runners are permitted but must begin at the back of the starting line.
Portable music
Portable music with headphones are allowed but must be kept at low volume so runners can hear approaching traffic and verbal instructions from law enforcement and volunteers. Failure to abide may result in DQ.

Please obey law enforcement officers and volunteers at all times! They are positioned on course for your safety. In rare cases, law enforcement may require runners to stop to allow traffic to pass. Failure to obey law enforcement and volunteers may result in removal from the course and disqualification.

Cancellations

There are no registration refunds. However, if you are not able to use your registration for any reason you have the option below.

Pay a $50 fee to defer your registration to any Destination Races event open for registration within that calendar year (except Napa-to-Sonoma).

The deferral policy applies to any Destination Races event within a 12-month period (registration for the race must still be open and not sold out). You must process your deferral at least 7 days prior to the race. No deferrals will be accepted for any reason once we are within 7 days of the race.

Transfers + Credits

Pay a $20 fee to transfer your registration to another individual.
Transfers may be processed up to and including the Race Expo (Cost $20) and must be initiated by the person seeking to transfer their registration.

To complete the process, the original registrant will navigate to https://myevents.active.com, will locate their race registration, and will select “Transfer to another athlete.” After selecting this option, they will be prompted to enter the new participant’s email address on the following page. The new participant will then be invited to claim the transfer via email where they will be directed to checkout on Active.com.

Once the new participant has accepted and checked out with the registration, the original participant will be refunded their registration, less the $20 transfer fee. The new runner will be provided a bib and packet.

Transfer Prior to Feb 14

On or after Feb 14 

The person receiving the transfer must process transfers at the Race Expo. The new runner should get the necessary info from the original registrant, fill out the Transfer Form, and bring it to the the expo where they will pay for their registration.
