FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

am i one of the first 3,000 people to register for the 5k or 10k and receive a free voucher good for a reserve level game ticket? and when do i get that voucher and how?

During registration you should have seen a box to check that you wanted to receive your free voucher. As long as you checked the box, this year we are EMAILING you a promo code to redeem online for your game tickets. Once we hit 3,000 registered runners who ask for the voucher, we remove the check box from registration and will make note on website that vouchers are gone. If you registered multiple people who have the same email address, we will send one email that will contain multiple promo codes, one for each person who signed up with that email address. Do note that vouchers only go to people who register for 5K and 10K, not the Kids Fun Run.
