Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can I run/walk with my child in a baby/jogging stroller for this race?
A. We do permit baby joggers/strollers for this event, but we ask that you start in the back of the back, whether you are running or walking. This is for your safety and for the safety of those around you. Please note that scooters, bikes, skateboards and rollerblades are not allowed.
Q. Do I need to register my child who will be sitting in the baby jogger?
A. No, you do not. However, note that they will not be receiving a t-shirt.
Q. Can I run/walk with my dog for this race?
A. Sorry, but pets are not allowed, except for seeing-eye dogs. While we realize it is fun for both you and your pet to run/walk together, this policy has been established by both our insurance company and us for safety reasons.
Q. May I wear an ipod during the race?
A. We discourage the use of ipods during the race. We love music, but we want you to be safe. The reason we discourage ipods is because the headphones impair your ability to hear the directions of volunteers and Police on the course, emergency vehicles, and the runners around you. If you do elect to wear headphones, we ask that you wear them in one ear only or keep the volume at a level that allows you to hear those people and vehicles around you.
Q. Do you accept credit or debit cards for payment for race day registration?
A. We do. We accept cash, check and debit/credit. Checks can be made payable to A Change of Pace Foundation or “ACOP”.
Q. My group is interested in volunteering for this race. Who do we contact?
A. Wonderful! We are always looking for volunteers to assist with race duties. Please call Jeannine Henderson by e-mail.
Q. Do you offer complimentary entries for elite athletes for this race?
A. Sorry, we do not.
Q. Do you have porta-potties on the course?
A. No. Portable toilets will be available at the start and finish area.
Q. Will you have a sweat/gear check for this event?
A. Yes. There will be a tent set up near to the finish line/registration area where you can “check” your sweats. You will be provided with a plastic bag on which you will write your bib number. After finishing the race, please come back to the sweat check tent in a timely manner to claim your bag. While the area will be secure, we will not be held responsible for any lost items, so please do not leave valuables. The sweat check tent will remain open until 10:30 a.m
Q. Do you have race day registration?
A. Yes, absolutely! Race day registraiton will be available for all events starting at 6:45 a.m. It will be located at the start/finish area for the event. We recommend arriving one hour prior to the start time of your race in order to allow sufficient time to park, register, use porta-potties, etc.
Q. Could you email me the coupon code?
A. We are asked this every so often on facebook and by e-mail. There are no coupon codes floating around out there in cyberspace for athletes to use to save a few bucks on their entry. We believe it is important to be upfront about our pricing, and we don’t want you to have to search the internet for a code when you register for one of our races. The prices are wholly determined by the distance you wish to run/walk and the date you register. If we ever offer a promotion, it’s at the same time registration opens for a race, so that there is never a “penalty” for registering early (and then finding out that there is a deal or coupon offered later on). There are no groupons, coupons, or discounts. The only reason the coupon code line appears on the online registration form is for use in the unique situation of a sponsor entry.
Q. Do you offer scholarships?
A. To submit a request, please put your request in writing, detailing your situation and need. You may e-mail it (preferred) or submit it in writing to: Capitol City Classic, c/o A Change of Pace Foundation, 1260 Lake Blvd., #245, Davis, CA 95616. The deadline to submit requests is April 8th.
