Please note: Half Marathon & 10 Mile finishers will receive a (different) Finisher’s Medal which is included with the Half Marathon entry fee. Kids Fun Run entrants will be awarded a ribbon.

T-shirts:

All 5K, 10K, Ten Mile and Half Marathon entries include a gender specific, short sleeve technical t-shirt. Kids Fun Run entries include a short sleeve cotton t-shirt.

Shirt sizes and availability are not guaranteed for those registering at Packet Pick Up or on Race Day and will be available while supplies last.

Time Limits:

All events have a time limit of 3 hours for course support. This allows for a pace of up to 13:45/mile in the half marathon and 18:00/mile in the 10 Mile. The finish line will be open up to 3 hours and 30 minutes to record finishers who reach the finish line past the cut off.

Please note: There is a processing fee for all entries.

This fee covers the costs associated with using credit / debit cards as well as online processing and entry management and we strive to use online providers that keep the fees as low as possible. We also offer in-person entry at Fleet Feet in  Davis if you would prefer to pay by cash or check (processing fees still apply).

Minimum Age:

The minimum age to participate in the Half Marathon is 14 years old on race day. This may be waived on a case by case basis by e-mailing us here. There is no minimum age for the 5K, 10K or Ten Mile as we will leave that to the parents’ discretion.

Field Limits:

Field limits exist in order to keep the event fun and safe for all and allow runners and walkers adequate space to run at their desired pace during the event. Field limits in place are 1,200 for the half marathon and Ten Mile combined. Please register early to save money and ensure your space.

Headlamps and Reflective Gear:

Headlamps and reflective gear are strongly recommended for all Ten Mile and Half Marathon participants who anticipate a finish time greater than 1 hour and 35 minutes. It will be dark by 1:45 into the race.

Headphones:

We discourage, but do not disallow, the use of headphones/music on the route. Please be smart and keep the volume low, or use one earbud only, during the race. This allows you to hear oncoming athletes, lead bikes warnings (who may be approaching from behind), cyclists, emergency vehicles, direction from volunteers or Police and other noises around you that help keep you safe and traveling along the correct race course.

Race Communication:

Upon registering for the event, you will automatically be e-mailed a confirmation e-mail indication that the registration was successful. We suggest checking junk or “update” folders (gmail) if you do not appear to receive it within fifteen minutes. Any subsequent communication will be done by email, therefore we suggest registering with an email address that you check frequently.  Occasional updates will be posted on our Davis Moonlight Run Facebook page. Please consider this website your primary source of race information.

Refund/Cancellation & Entry Rules:

All entries are non-refundable and are not transferable to another event. No cash refunds under any circumstances. No refunds of the “difference” if you drop down a division, for example from Half Marathon to 5K/10K. The “difference” may not be applied to add-ons (such as the optional medal or extra t-shirts), other runners’ entries to this event or to other events we host.  If you wish to transfer your entry to a friend or family member in the case that you become injured or cannot otherwise attend, you may do so on or before 5:00 PM on July 7, 2016 using the participant self-management option. If you are unable to process the transfer on your runsignup account, please e-mail us (see below) no later than July 6. No exceptions after these deadlines. There is no fee to directly transfer to a friend/family member but your request must be handled online by the deadline. If an athlete is transferring 5K entry to a runner who wishes to participate in a more expensive event (such as the half marathon), the new entrant will need to pay the current price difference. No phone, fax or  in person requests for entry transfers.  All race communication is done via e-mail so please include an email that you check on your entry. Emails are not sold or traded.

Please read additional race rules and information on the Course, FAQ and Event Details pages of this site.
