Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I pick up my bib and t-shirt?
You can pick up your bib and t-shirt on Friday, April 7th at the Literacy office in the Huntington Beach Library or on race day at Huntington Beach Central Park. If you plan to pick up your t-shirt and bib the day of the race, plan to arrive at least 30-45 minutes before the start time.

Can someone else pick up my bib for me?
Of course, just send a copy of your ID and your signed waiver along with a friend.

Do kids need to register/pay to run the 5K?
Yes, everyone must pay and register for their race regardless of age. You can register here. 

What is the charge for the Kid's Run?
$5.00 and this includes a finisher medal. Early registration helps us with the medal count when ordering.

Is the 5K a paved course?
Yes and No.  The run/walk 5k is a mixed terrain run of pavement, grass, and dirt trail. It is a fun course, but strollers be advised you may be “off-roading” for short parts of the course!

Can I run or walk with a baby jogger or stroller?

Baby joggers and strollers are permitted and encouraged!

Can I run with my dog?

No, please no pets.

No. We plan the race based on the number of registered runners, so once you have registered we cannot offer you a refund. If, however, you register and do not run, you may still pick up your race packet and shirt and join us in the fun.

Yes. The 5K is a mix of pavement, dirt, and grass. Just please be mindful of your surroundings as it is an uneven terrain.
