As participants start asking us questions I'll add some more FAQ's. For now:


Are T-Shirts guaranteed to everyone?

Yes and No - Everyone who registers by January 6th is guaranteed a T-Shirt. We will order extra shirts based on projected total number of entries. We could run out if the rate of entries picks up as race day nears. Register early to guarantee your Beethover 15K or 5K long sleeved shirt.


Can a friend pick up my packet?

Yes. Packet pickup takes place Saturday, January 12th at Omega Sports from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm and again on Saturday at the Fitness Center in Brunswick Forest from 3:00 - 4:00 pm.


Are head phones allowed?

Yes, but we strongly discourage them, as per USATF policy. You need all your senses functioning properly to help you stay safe when you train or race. Please be smart and leave your head phones at home.

NOTE: Every person that has gotten off course in our recent races has been wearing head phones. You can't hear a volunteer yelling that you are going the wrong way if you have head phones on, anymore than you can hear a car approaching you.

Headphones = Bad!!


Can I park at the Fitness Center?

Yes, but the parking area at the center will fill up early. It's better to park at the commercial area (2nd entrance on your right as you enter Brunswick Forest from highway 17) in an area away from the buildings and walk 7 minutes to the start. If you arrive after 8:15 am the Fitness Center parking area will be full for sure. Race start is 9:00 am.


Will I freeze after the race?

No, all post race activities are inside the Fitness Center. It will be warm and cozy and you can use the locker rooms to put on some dry clothes if you need to.


Can I register Race Morning?

Yes, in the Fitness Center. Arrive early to give yourself time to get through the registration process and warm up before you go out and crush it on the course!


Are dogs allowed in the race?

Yes, but only in the Beethoven's Doggy Dash 1-mile starting at 8:35 am. But you can come back and race our totally dog friendly Hound Hustle 10K, 5K & 1-mile Trot with Spot  in April of 2020.
