Simple answer: yes, of course you may change your distance! There is no charge for moving to a shorter distance, however, we do charge the difference for going to the longer distance. To do this, pick up your original race packet and bring it to the in-person registration area. They will give you a new chip and bib. If you have a personalized bib, you're welcome to still wear it (no one will be the wiser!)
Slow runners and walkers are welcome provided you maintain progress on the course and do not deviate from the course. Stopping is not allowed for any other reason except a medical condition, hydration and/or to use the restroom, and will mean disqualification from the race and the possibility that race support will no longer be available.

Runners are encouraged to carpool to Stillwater. Parking is available in various locations throughout downtown Stillwater. Follow this link for parking information.
All runners will be bused to the start lines for the 10 Mile , 12K and 5K races. Buses will load on Water Street between Myrtle Street and Mulberry Street and begin leaving for the start at 6:15 a.m., continuing until 25 minutes before race start time. Last bus leaves for the start areas at 7:30 a.m. SHARP.
The finish area will be serviced continuously by shuttle buses beginning at approximately 7:40 am. Spectators may find buses on Water Street between Myrtle Street and Mulberry Street. The ride from downtown Stillwater is a short 6-7 minutes to the Boom Site and will bring our runner-guests and fans back to Stillwater and the headquarters at the Water Street Inn after the race. There is positively NO parking available at Boom Site Park or along the adjacent highway.
8 a.m. for all distances. Course details are visible in the course maps. See tabs on the website.
The finish line is at the Boom Site Park three miles north of Stillwater on Hwy 95. The first 5K runners will cross the finish around 8:17 to 8:20. 12K runners are expected around 8:40 on, and 10 Milers will arrive after 9:00 a.m.
The race will occur rain or shine. Runner safety is our number one priority. We have over 65 course marshals and public safety officers stationed around the course to help runners in good weather and bad. In the event of lightening in the area, we will delay until there are no lightening strikes for 30 minutes, which is the national standard for these conditions. We have direct contacts with the national weather service in the Twin Cities and area meteorologists to track conditions.
Race results will be posted and updated regularly at the Water Street Inn: our race headquarters. We do not hold an awards ceremony. Age group awards for first, second and third place are customized and sent to participants following the race.
We hope you'll stay and relax while taking advantage of brunch at the hotel. The Water Street Inn is providing special pricing race-morning for participants, and family and friends are always welcome.
