Rock the 80’s | 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. Is the 10K “walker friendly”?
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. Do I have to dress up in an 80’s themed costume to participate in this event?
A. No, costumes are optional. But we think it will be a lot more radical to wear one!
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 contact Jeannine Henderson by e-mail. (E-mail is best!)

Q. Will you have a sweat/gear check for this event?

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 10:45 a.m
