Are refunds available?

We cannot issue a refund for the registration fee under any circumstances. This is also stated in the waiver section when you register. However, you can transfer your registration to someone else as long as it’s done at least 3 weeks prior to the race.  If you do not know of anyone else that would like it you can always post it on our Facebook event page to try and find someone there!

Are strollers allowed?

We do not allow strollers on our courses. The terrain can be uneven, making it unsafe for children being pushed in strollers.

Can I bring my cat/dog/tiger?

No. No. And (definitely) no. We love pets! However, we simply cannot have any pets besides service animals at this event.

Can I transfer my registration?

Yes, as long as it’s at least 3 weeks prior to the race! In order to transfer your registration, follow the steps below:

  1. Sign into the RunSignUp account you created when you registered.
  2. Click on “My Registered Races” and click on “View/Edit Registration”
  3. Select “Transfer to Another Runner”.
  4. Fill in the name and email of the person you will be transferring the registration to and select “Transfer as Gift”. There is a $13.50 fee to make the transfer that’s payable by you or the recipient.
  5. Enter in your payment information and complete the transfer process.
Can my kids participate?

Absolutely! More and more kids are running these days, and The Hard Cider Run is a great event for the whole family. We even have youth sized shirts and they will receive a non-alcoholic drink at the end! Please note, there will be no strollers allowed in the run. If you bring a stroller, you will be asked to run without it.

Do I get anything for registering?

You mean besides some exercise? Of course!

  • Entry to the scenic 5K run or walk
  • 2019 finisher’s medal complete with a bottle opener
  • 2019 ultra-soft t-shirt
  • Chip Timing
  • Hard cider or non-alcoholic cider upon finishing
  • Commemorative glass to take home
Do I have to register my kid?

All participants on the course must be registered. If you plan on bringing the whole family, we encourage you to create a team, as each team member will save $5. Be sure to select a youth sized shirt when registering the younger kids! Please note that anyone not wearing a race bib will not be allowed to enter the course.

Do I have to run?

Nope! We love runners, walkers, joggers, skippers, dashers, dancers, prancers… you get the picture. We welcome all participants with open arms and full glasses of cider!

How can I register?

Registration can be done online. Simply hit the ‘Find a Race’ button  to be taken to our online registration system!

I am still clueless. Can I ask you something else?

Absolutely! Shoot an email to info@sourfishevents.com and we’ll get back to you!

Is this a timed event?

Yes. Every registered participant will have a bib with a timing chip on it. Results will be posted within 24 hours after the race on RunSignUp.com

It says the event/wave is sold out. Can I run anyway?

Sorry, once the race/wave is sold out we cannot add anyone else to the event. We cap events based on the cidery’s capacity, and these cannot be exceeded. Consider registering early to secure your preferred wave spot!

There is no “I” in TEAM. Except I want to know how to be a part of one. How does it benefit me?

Well, for starters, it’s highly encouraged! If you register as a team, not only do you save $5 per person, but you also get to compete (or lollygag) as a team. Teams DO NOT have to register all at once. The first person to register creates a team name (make it epic!), sets a password, then lets their friends/family know. Also worth noting: you do not have to stick together during the run. In fact, we do not score teams based on time, all timing is done individually.

What happens after the run?

After you finish, enjoy a glass of hard apple cider produced on location! Savor every delicious sip as you mingle with friends and enjoy the music that fills the warm air. Plenty of food will be available for purchase to make the post-race party even better!

Can my friend pick up my packet?

Absolutely! Just make sure they bring a copy of your email confirmation or a copy of your photo ID (a picture on their phone is fine, too)!
