  • Social distancing

  • Picking Up For Others: Bring a copy or photograph of their ID
  • Half Marathon: Everyone who originally registered for the half should have received a $25 credit to use on another NCRC race
  • Transfers: The new runner should come to packet pick up with a photo of your id. I will have them fill out a new registration form so we have their correct information for scoring. There is no cost to transfer
  • Bring a friend! Late registration is $35. We accept cash, check, credit card, Android, Samsung and ApplePay both Saturday and Sunday.

COVID 19 Information:

While the rules have been changing rapidly, we are trying to maintain social distancing and a safe environment for the event. First off: if you feel shortness of breath, muscle aches, chills, loss of smell or taste, please stay home.
  • Saturday Packet Pickup: Omega Sports allows fully vaccinated people to enter without face covering. 
  • Race Starting Line: We will place markers with approximate pace & finish time in the start corral. Try to stay spread out until it is time to start. One minute before start, we will signal everyone to move up to the starting line.
  • Face Covering: Leaving face covering to your judgement. We will have trash cans near the starting line for you to toss it as you’re starting. If you need a disposable mask to toss, we have them at registration.
  • Aid Stations: We are doing “grab and go” style aid stations with the usual half-filled cups.
  • Awards: Awards are Omega gift cards. If you win an age group or overall, you can retrieve your award from Omega Sports North Hills on Monday. Awards must be claimed within one month.

Baggage Check:

We will continue to offer baggage check if you are picking up your shirt and number on race day. We will have clear plastic bags and index cards available, write your race number and last name on an index card and put it in the bag so it is visible.
