Registration Policies

Registration Changes

You can change races until race day.

If you SWITCH from the half marathon/20K to the 5K or Kids Fun Run more than 30 days before the race, the difference will be refunded. If you make this switch 30 days or less before the event, the difference will not be refunded.

If you switch from the 5K to the half marathon/20K or from Kids Fun Run to the 5K/20K/half marathon, there is an additional fee. Please send an email to jody@jbsports.com to switch.

After August 27, any changes or corrections must be made at packet pickup at Trailblazer in New Haven. Your race bib contains a label with your registration information. Please verify the information and confirm spelling. Corrections will be made before race results are published if we know about these changes before the race starts.
