Frequently asked questions:

–––––––––––

–––––––––––

Can I register for the event on-line?

Yes! Go to our Registration Form page We use Active.com. There may be a discount for those who are already members of Active .com, but membership is not required to use the site. Instead, you can register on-line as a guest.

–––––––––––

–––––––––––

Can children 5 and younger participate?

Yes! Registration for a child 5 years old, or younger, that participates in the Run/Walk is FREE. However, we must still receive a filled out entry form for the child, and the child must be accompanied by a participating parent or legal guardian. Neighbors, older siblings, and other unrelated adults do not qualify as legal guardians.

Sorry, we cannot provide children 5 years and younger with a 5K race shirt.

Do children get a discounted registration fee?

No, not as individual participants (except for those 5 years old or younger, who are free).

Funds raised at this event go first to pay for the myriad costs of putting on an event such as this, and remaining funds are used by the Norco Kiwanis Club to provide continued support for the club's children's programs as well as to provide scholarships for high school seniors. So, the registration fee for individual runners and walkers is the same regardless of age.

However, there is a group discount for 10 participants. (Please refer to the answer to the question, "Is there a group discount?") We encourage you to take advantage of the group discount.

Kiwanis is a self-supporting service organization and receives no government or agency funding. We depend solely on those participating in events such as this, and we—and the children who benefit—are grateful for your donations.

Yes, for groups of 10. It could be 10 runners, 10 walkers, or a mix of runners and walkers, but only for a full group of 10 -- no partial groups. To receive the discount, a group of 10 must all register at the same time. Group Discount Page.

Are there medals for the walkers?

No, just for the runners. It would be too difficult to keep track of those who walk the whole course without running, jogging, or stubbing their toe.

What if I forget to bring my ID to the event?

Then you must go home and get it or you cannot participate. Because part of the course is on Navy property, every participant must have a pass to be on the course. The only way to get a pass is to get one at check-in and that requires a government issued picture ID, such as a drivers license.

If you do not bring your ID and can't participate, and there will not be a refund.

Can I register on the morning of the event?

Yes! Last minute participants are welcome!

If you want to participate and decide to register on the morning of the event, please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before the start of the event. Of course, same-day registrants must pay the late registration and are encouraged to bring a filled-in registration form to expedite the process.

Also, late registrants are not guaranteed an event T-shirt. T-shirts must be ordered in advance, and we try to anticipate the number of late registrations, but it is possible that we will not have enough for everyone. Only early registrants are guaranteed a T-shirt. Same-day registrants will not receive a T-shirt before the event and can ask afterward whether any T-shirts are still available.
