Additional Info





  • This section may not answer all of your questions but it may help.


    Here is an assortment of things that do not have their own section.

    Course maps?  We try to have course maps available for each race if possible.  Always check the website first for answers.

    How do I get on the newsletter?  
    You want to make sure that you  get the newsletters, it is simple text scallywompus to 22828 using your phone, if you email address is in your phone it will place your email address on the newsletter.


  • When and where is packet pick up?

    Read the website information under ppu.  We usually have ppu one day before our events for 3-4 hours depending on the availability of volunteers.  

    A second and final ppu takes place at the start of the race 2-3 hours before the start.  This happens for each race.

    What are the rules for packet pick up?
    We are glad you asked this question.  Everyone at PPU is a volunteer.  If possible do anything and everything you can to assist them in their job.

    What happens if I'm not showing up as registered  but I did register?
    First, don't panic.  We will get you registered and get you a number and follow up with you at a different time. We will get your registered.

    What happens if they don't have my t-shirt size that i requested?
    First, don't panic.  We will get a t-shirt that fits for you at a later time.  Especially if you signed up early.

    Can I pick up my friends packet? and more packets?
    If you know the persons name and something about them we will assume that you have their permission to get their packet, we may take down your name.

    What happens if I can not make it to early packet pick up?
    First....yes you understand now, don't panic.  We will have PPU at the race right before the start.

    Can I register at PPU?
    Yes.  We can take cc, check or cash on site.

    Can I register online raceday?
    Yes.  If it is before the start of race.  We get emails of anyone that registers as they register up until the start of the race, so you can register online one hour before packet pick up and then go get your packet before the race.

    Why do prices go up before the race and then go up again at race day?
    All race directors like to know how many people are coming as early as possible so that aid stations can be stocked properly, and to make sure that all of the processes that have to take place for a safe run.
    Prices increase because it becomes increasingly difficult to handle large crowds of people registering just before the start.
    We know that you are busy and that sometimes you don't know if you can get to the race until race morning or race day, so we want you to race.









  • Yes is the short answer.

    You are responsible for your stroller, dog and your body.
    Ok, lets be specific.
    Strollers, if you are a fast runner and want to start at the front with a double wide stroller, this might be a problem unless you can guarantee that you will not encumber other runners.  You may be asked to move to the back.

    Dogs, love them.  But our insurance company will not allow them so they are not allowed?? This may be new news but it is an old issue.  Without the insurance we can not have an event.  So do we allow dogs and then not have an event?  Not an option.  So new rule, no dogs.


    Earbuds.  Some races will not let you have them because you can not hear volunteers scream at you when you are going the wrong way.
    We say, wear them but use common sense.  When coming to intersections or aid stations pop one earbud out so you can hear instructions.
    These events are live and things change you may want to know what is going on.  Plus we run in some interesting areas, listen to the sounds around you especially if you are running on a road.

  • All free give aways are planned for the runners only.  We can not stop  you from sampling drinks.  The food is for runners and volunteers only.  After all runners and volunteers have had a snack, if you want to taste the goodies, we ask that you go to the non profit in charge and make a donation and get a Scallywompus stamp that will allow you to partake in the food that is also donated.


  • We have a volunteer link to sign up for specific job a few weeks before each event.

    Sign up for a job online.  Invite a friend.  Then show up and do the job with a smile and have fun.
    We will be giving Volunteer medals out this year.  You can receive up to 8-10 hours of community service credit by being a volunteer.  You get a medal and you get to be a part of a great event.  Invite your friends and invite large groups to come out and have fun.  It is much more fun as a group. 



  • The number of awards and the categories depend on runner participation.  

    How?  If we exceed 800 runners we can afford to purchase more awards and have more categories.  It is simple economics.
    Currently because participation is up at our events we have categories in 5 year increments and we award 1st through 4th.
    If we get more participation we will extend that to 5th place.  We hope to get to 1st through 10th places for each category.  We need 2000 runners registered for that to happen.

    If you don't run the entire race, go to the timing table and tell them what happened.  If you cut a race short and accept an award that you did not deserve, that is not the right thing to do, don't do it.
    After you finish a race check the results and if something is wrong go to the timing people to discuss right then, don't leave until it is fixed.

    If you don't get your award, we do not ship awards.  We will make them available for pick up locally but you must be prepared to prove that you got the award and that you did not pick it up early.
    We will ask for ID, have you sign and take your picture.
    Same with t-shirts and medals.

    Currently we have decided to give medals for each person that crosses the line of any of our races as they are available.  If we run out of medals we will order more and you will be able to pick them up later with a matching bib number.  You only have to give you bib number to the person taking down bib numbers in the finishing chute one time.
    Keep your bib number, as this will make it easy at the pick up point.

    Didn't get the t-shirt you requested?  And you signed up before the designated date? We will order a replacement.

    Designated date?  Going forward we will promise that if you register early you will get your t-shirt and your size if you signed up before a certain date.  After that date you can not be guaranteed the right size.  We usually fix these issues the best we can.  We want you to wear the t-shirts, so we are motivated to make them fit and make them look good.


  • Volunteers, check the website we post for volunteers for each event separately and usually 2-3 weeks before each event.

    Lost and Found at a race.  If you find a phone, wallet, money, or anything that is not yours please take it to the DJ or emcee and they will announce it.

    Bad weather....the race goes on no matter what.  If the race is called off by officials, then the race is closed and there will not be any refunds.

    Switching events.  We usually have 2 distances for any event.  If you want to upgrade you will pay the difference plus $10 for the administration of manually switching you from one event to the other.
    If you want to downgrade you will just pay the $10 manual switch fee.

    You can no switch from one event to another on two different days ever.
    We have to have a signature on file for each event for insurance reasons.  






  • We love all vendors and groups to participate in our events.

    Show us that as a vendor you are a part of the running community by providing $250-300 in value to each event and we will not charge you to come to our events.
    That is right you can come at no charge.  If you do the following;
    1. Read on the website about where to come and arrive 1 hour before the start of the event to set up your tent.
    2. Provide 250-300 dollars of value to the event so that the runners benefit.
    3. Provide your own stuff, tent, table, people to set your self up.
    4. Do not leave until the event is over, even if you run out of product, don't leave until the last runners finish and have time to talk with you.
    5. Promote the event on your Facebook page, via Twitter, etc...some type of free social media to help us get additional runners to know about the event.
    6. Recruit a volunteer, or two, or maybe even a group of volunteers.
    7. Treat each event as if it were your own.  Take ownership to make the events great.

    If you want your logos on t-shirts, medals, or awards, please email in advance so that we can discuss the costs for that to take place.






  • Totally another one right here

  • This is the beauty of doing running events.

    One hour before the start is a good time to be set up so that runners that are warming up will see you and know that you will be a part of the after race party.
    We do recommend that you stay late.  The after, after party is where you really get to know the core group of runners and what they like to see from vendors.

  • I was wrong, I'm done

  • Do exactly as the Race Director tells you.

    We as usual have a plan, so talk with the RD or the designated vendor helper at the race.  Unload and set up then go park in the vendor section if there is one, usually there is one.
    Bring everything you need, tent, tables, pens, water for your self and staff, be self sufficient.  
    The Race Director is focused on runners race day so ask all of your questions one week in advance of the race, email is best.


  • Yes, if you are attending the race and want to put flyers in the packets, get the flyers to the Race Director one week in advance.

    Putting flyers in packets is just the start.  Back this up by showing up and doing something special for the runners that they will not forget.

    Bring volunteers, bring giveaways for the runners.  Have the emcee do giveaways to the crowd.

    We do charge a $50 fee to stuff your flyers into a race packet.


We don't charge for you to come to the event but we do charge new vendors for logo placements.
