All runners are required to register prior to the Run. But if running is not your thing, come join our Cheer Squad or be a Volunteer. For more information, email email@example.com
Do I have to be a runner to go to the Retreat or Rally?
Heck no friend! If you’re running and your cheer squad isn’t but they want to hit up that retreat with you, go for it. Y’all are welcome to buy tickets to whichever part of the weekend makes sense to you. (With every group there must be at least one runner. If you have guests, you will need to purchase a ticket for them.)
Do I need to be an experienced runner to sign up?
Absolutely not! RISE Run is all about celebrating the blessing of getting to move your body. No matter what shape, age, or stage you are at in your fitness journey. If walking is your jam or running is what fuels your soul, RISE Run is an all-fitness level community event. RISE Run is about becoming the best version of you, together.
How do I train for RISE Run?
There are a ton of resources online that will help you train for free but if you want our training schedule it’s included with your race ticket and will be sent out in June.
Are there limited tickets available?
To ensure every runner has the best experience, we have limited spots available for each route. So make sure you register today!
Are there military or first responder discounts?
All active duty members, veterans, military spouses, and first responders receive a 20% discount on their route of choice. Please email our Customer Service team at firstname.lastname@example.org on how to receive that discount.
Are animals permitted during the Run?
Man, we love doggos too but for safety reasons we’re not allowed to have any dogs (or cats or birds or fish) on the route. The only exception being for service animals.
What are staging groups?
Staging groups are assigned to make sure those who are at the same running level are grouped together at the starting line. During registration, there will be a spot for you to choose your estimated finishing time. If this is your first time running that distance, no worries, just make your best guess at where you are now.
Will the Run be timed?
RISE Run is not a competition and there will be no awards given for time or place. However, we know we have a lot of goal getters out there so your individual time will be tracked, recorded, and sent to you post race.
Will the run be cancelled if there’s bad weather?
We sure hope not, but will notify you immediately of any cancellation in the case of inclement weather. RISE Run officials will make a decision on whether or not to cancel/resume based on course and runner safety.
Yes! The RISE Run Facebook group is a great way to connect with other participants and get training tips + encouragement. Join here! (Keep in mind, you will only be accepted with an email that matches your ticket purchase.)
What if I can't make it to the Run?
Unfortunately, if you are unable to attend, we are not able to ship medals or any other items related to your registration. All tickets are non-refundable / non-transferable.
We recommend you arrive at least ONE HOUR before your start time.
Are there any age requirements for the run?
Half Marathon - Minimum age is 11 years old
5k - Minimum age is 5 years old
All runners under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Can I run with a stroller?
Of course! All participants with a stroller will be grouped together as the last group to start. When you register, there will be an area to identify yourself as running with a stroller. If you're running with a stroller we suggest doing the 5K since 13 miles is a loooong way to push your babe!
What if I am an athlete that requires special accommodations?
Yesss! Everyone is included in our RISE Run community, and we are so excited to have you participate with us! When you register, there will be a place for you to give us some more details. Then as the Run gets closer, we will send you an email with everything you need to know.
Will there be restrooms and water available while I am running?
Yes! There will be potties at the start, the finish and every single mile will have water and bathrooms as well!
Where can my family + friends go to cheer for me?
We encourage all family and friends to come to the tun and cheer you on! Friends and family are welcome to be at the finish line to be there when you cross that finish line! Or they can head to downtown San Marcos to line the streets as you run through town.
Will there be medical services available during the run?
Yes, there will be medical services located at the start & finish line, as well as along the route.
Will there be gear check available?
Yes - we will have gear check available at the start line for all the things!
What is the Retreat?
