FAQ’s

Are strollers allowed? Yes, on both courses.

Are dogs allowed?  Some people and kids are afraid of dogs.  And some dogs growl and snap at other dogs.  Best to keep your dog home.

Can someone else pick-up my race packet?  Yes, please.  It’s actually a huge help when someone picks up lots of race packets.  It keeps the lines shorter.  If possible, have your bib numbers written down.  No ID is required at packet pick-up.  

Will you send out bib numbers before packet pick-up to save time?  Yes.

I made a mistake on my registration?  Can I email you about a change?  Yes.  Email us at racedirector@treesgreenville.org
