We HIGHLY recommend visiting the website for this race to get a feel for what you’re getting yourself into. If you’re looking for a highly competitive race with strict rules, this isn’t it. This is a family atmosphere, laid back, and we’re about getting your miles done and getting you to your goal. When you register for this race, you acknowledge that you have read the website and understand how our races are run.
As with any other race put on by any other company, registration fees and add-on fees are final and are not refundable or transferable for any reason. The races will go on rain, snow, or shine.
IF YOU DEFERRED YOUR RACE FROM 2020, just register as usual and use code MO2020 to claim that deferral. (If you use that code and you were NOT registered last year, you will be automatically removed from the roster.)
Awesomesauce Events produces low-key, laid-back running events that are focused more about camaraderie instead of competition. Our courses are not certified and not Boston qualifiers, but they are measured accurately and are USATF sanctioned. You won’t find mid-race splits or mile markers or bands on every corner or an army of volunteers with their arms outstretched holding drinks just for you. There are plenty of races that are more serious, and we choose to run for fun. We do time our races and the results are posted online, but you will not be timed to the millisecond by chip timing equipment. If these things are important to you, we welcome you to search out other race companies. Our races are more like having a picnic with your friends with some running or walking thrown in for fun. We welcome fun-loving, laid-back, family atmosphere type people who are more worried about having a good time over running absolutely as fast as they can. As with any other race put on by any other company, registration fees and add-on fees are final and are not refundable or transferable for any reason. Prices are subject to change. The races will go on rain or shine. (We reserve the right to cancel, delay, or pause mid-race if there are dangerous weather conditions, including lightning or high winds.)
We recommend visiting our website to learn more about us, about how we operate, and find out what to expect!
2022 COVID information: It seems like in 2021, we’d get going on putting on a race, and COVID-19 would throw a new curveball our way. There have been a LOT of ups and downs. Awesomesauce is a company that we affectionately say is “just a girl in her garage.” We are beyond lucky to have amazing help in Ocala to make these races happen, but the fact of the matter is, it is expensive to put on any race. Permit fees, insurance, travel costs, swag, food and drinks, first aid supplies, race bibs, right down to things like safety pins and pens to write down finish times; it’s all purchased using your registration fees. We are not big enough to have sponsors to offset costs, and we try to keep our registration prices as low as we can. Because of the continued unpredictability with COVID-19 regulations and registration numbers, when you sign up for this race you understand that if we cannot register enough runners for the race to break even in terms of costs, we will cancel the race. Since, like most races, we do not offer refunds (it is expensive to do that as well, but that’s a story for another day), in the event that we have to cancel, you will receive a race credit for the distance you signed up for, for a future race, which can be used for up to 3 years.
The alternative to this would be our business closing entirely. This is the best way we can try to weather this storm and survive as a business. We are sincerely thankful for all of your support.
