Save a whole two dollars on your entry fee (oooh!) by preregistering by mail! Just send us a completed entry form and a check (payable to "Shenandoah Valley Runners"). See the sidebar at right for links to our printable entry forms. Try not to mail your form after, say, Tuesday 17 March, because if you wait any longer than that, we might not receive it in time.
For some reason, we've decided to offer online registration this year as well! So if you have a credit card, you can sign up online at SignMeUp.com. Online registration will be available until approximately 12:02 PM EDT on Friday 20 March (two days before the race).
(Be aware that SignMeUp.com tacks on a "processing fee" of 6.5% of your entry fee plus $1.00, so you'll be paying more than you would by mail. The processing fees come out to either $1.32 or $1.39, depending on whether or not you're an SVR member. That's the cost of convenience, I reckon! Also, if you do not have a special user account with SignMeUp.com, you do not have to create one in order to register for this race online.)
Race day entries are more than welcome! Just show up at Watermelon Park with your checkbook or some cash in hand. Race day registration will be from 7:02 to 7:47 AM.
Our base entry fees for both races are $5.99 prior to race day, and $7.99 on race day. If you are a member of either the Shenandoah Valley Runners or the Loudoun Road Runners Club, you get a $1 discount. (Therefore, SVR & LRRC members pay $4.99 early or $6.99 on race day.)
(Note: The $249.99 "Premium Entry" offer, described on the race flyer, expired in early March.)
Each participants will receive a genuine Stupid Little 10 Miler & 5K pencil! (Who needs another t-shirt, right?)
Refunds & Transfers
Your entry fee is non-refundable, since we gotta pay for our race expenses whether you show up on race day or not. Also, entries are non-transferrable, which means that if, for example, your lady friend preregisters but winds up being unable to participate, you can't show up on race day and "claim" her entry in order to weasel out of paying an entry fee yourself. (Yes, this has happened!)
Proceeds from the race, if any, will be donated to the American Heart Association in honor of the race director's late father. However, the race is not intended as a fundraiser. In fact, it's entirely possible that the race will lose a few bucks because of the race director's stupid decision to keep the entry fees low! If the race loses money, it comes out of the race director's pocket. What a dummy he is.
