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 question asking you if you wanted to receive a free Dodger game ticket. As long as you chose YES, you will receive an EMAIL with a voucher code to redeem online for your game tickets. The voucher code will come via email to each registrant at the middle of the following month from when registrant signed up for the race.
Once we reach 3,000 registered runners who claimed their voucher code, we will remove the question from registration and will make note on the website that vouchers are Sold Out. If you registered multiple people with the same email address, we will send one email that will contain multiple voucher codes, one for each person who signed up with that email address. Do note that vouchers only go to people who register for the 5K and 10K, NOT the Kids Fun Run. Please make sure to check your junk folder and spam folder as last year this email ended up there often.
WHEN IS THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE?
