4. I am already registered to run but did not select to get my packet mailed to me. How can I add that on?
A. Yes, participants who are unable to attend the expo to pick up their packet have the option to pay to have their bib, race shirt, and additional purchases mailed to them prior to race day.  The fee to have your race packet mailed is $25.  This can be done during registration or after registering and adjusting your Add-Ons.  
The deadline to purchase this option is Tuesday, October 12.  
Packages will be mailed via trackable USPS Priority mail.  An email with the tracking information will be sent to the email address used during registration.  Unfortunately, due to mailing logistics we are unable to mail more than one packet in the same package.  Each registrant wishing to have their packet mailed must purchase this option.
5. What is this processing fee? Can I have it waved?
A. The processing fee is set in place by our registration providers, it’s how they make a living. The registration providers maintain registrations and help out with the development of our system over time – they do great things for us and for you! We cannot waive processing fees.
We do not allow for paper, mailed or faxed registrations, and even if we did, we would still be required to include the processing fee.

7. May I receive a refund?
A. No, there are NO REFUNDS if this race is cancelled.  Please keep this in mind when making your decision to register for this race.
Decision-making authority to proceed or cancel the race based on weather conditions rests almost solely with Maryland Transportation Authority.  A cancellation could arise over a "likely" forecast of inclement weather.  During Inclement weather, the MDTA does not implement two-way operations on the Bay Bridge's westbound span.  As such, the eastbound span cannot close for the event and the race would be cancelled.  Should this occur, runners will have their entry fee and add-ons deferred to the following year.
Public notification of the decision to cancel can be made as late at 5 a.m. on the day of the race.  
8. May I transfer my registration to another runner?
A. No, we do not currently allow for registration transfers. If another runner is caught running with your bib intentionally you and the other runner will be barred from joining in our events again.
9. May I pick up a race packet for another runner?
A. Yes, you can pick up a packet for a friend! We just ask that you only pick up one additional packet. You will just need their E-registration card that will be emailed out the week of the race.
10.  How long do I have to complete the course?
All runners must be off the Bay Bridge by 11:00am (Mile 5) and across the finish line by 11:30am.  This is about a 30 minute per mile pace.  Those who cannot keep this pace may be picked up by the sag vehicle.
