Please observe our Packet Pickup, Race Transfer, Deferral, Refunds and Change Policy. Some policies have changed (and note that there are NO EXCEPTIONS!).
Packet Pickup will take place on Friday, November 3rd from 5-8:00 p.m. and Saturday, November 4th from 10-6:00 p.m. at the St. Mary’s Conference Center at 2825 5th Avenue, Huntington, WV 25702. This is on the corner of 5th Avenue and 29th Street. Timing Chips will be inside your packets.
What do I need to bring when I come to packet pickup?
All you need when you come to packet pickup is your ID. We require a picture ID. We will check your ID when you pick up your packet.
If I can’t make it to packet pickup, can I have my friend pick up my packet pickup for me?
We encourage all participants to pick up their own race packet however, if it is not possible for you to pick up your packet, you may have someone pick it up for you. That person must present a picture ID of the individual and a written and signed letter of permission. That person will be responsible for verifying personal race information (name, age, birth date, etc.).
What does VIR stand for and what is the VIR option??
VIR stands for Very Important Runner. We understand that race day can be very hectic especially when traveling to a strange city so in order to make your experience more pleasurable in the MUM we have established the VIR option. The VIR option is limited to fifty runners. For a fee of $30, we will organize your bib number, t-shirt/jacket, goodie bag and have them available for you on the morning of the MUM.
How do I register for the VIR option?
Contact email@example.com. Mail check to: Healthytristate.org, P.O. Box 6544, Huntington, WV 25772 for $30
Why have we limited the VIR to 50 participants?
We have eliminated packet pickup on event day yet we know there are exceptions to every rule. We understand the inconvenience of travel and by allowing packet pickup on event day in limited numbers we can accommodate those who need this service and at the same time concentrate on preparing for a great 2017 MUM.
Note: With the exception of the VIR Option there will be no packet pickup on race day.
This will be on Friday, November 3rd from 5-8 pm and Saturday, November 4th at packet pickup during the hours of (10:00 to 6:00 pm). Late registration will take place at the St. Mary’s Conference Center on the corner of 5th Avenue and 29th Street. The official address is 2825 fifth Avenue. There is plenty of free parking.
There is no race day registration in any category in 2017.
BIB NUMBER REQUIREMENTS
- All registered runners will receive a bib number that must be worn on the day of the event. If you are not wearing your bib during the race, you will be considered a non-official MUM participant and will be asked to leave the course.
- The bib must be visible and worn on the front outside of all clothing during the entire event.
- Please fill in the necessary medical and emergency contact information on the back of the bib number.
- Do not alter bibs in any way.
- Bib numbers are non-transferable and must be worn by the registered participant to whom they have been assigned.
- There will be a $10 replacement fee for all lost bibs.
LATE PACKET PICKUP
Bib Pickup concludes at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 4th. All jackets and shirts unclaimed will revert to the ownership of the MUM and will be available for sale on race day.
Can we pick up our shirt/jacket after we complete our event? Unfortunately, the answer is no. We do not have sufficient personnel to dedicate to keeping track of those garments that are picked up or not picked up. All shirts/jackets that are not claimed at the conclusion of packet pickup will be considered available for sale to the general public.
THERE WIL BE NO BIB PICKUP ON SUNDAY MORNING. All PARTICIPANTS MUST PICK UP THEIR PACKETS DURING NORMAL PICKUP HOURS ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3rd AND NOVEMBER 4TH. YOU CAN HAVE A FRIEND PICK UP YOUR PACKET ON FRIDAY OR SATURDAY IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT.
We get questions periodically on what qualifications there are for free entries into the race. Because of our already low registration prices we limit “comp entries” to exceptional situations. We will review each “comp” request on an individual basis.
