The 1/2 marathon & 5K run uses an electronic timing system that records race time and place via a timing tag that will be attached to your bib. There will be a clock at the finish line to view your time.
When and where do I pick up the tag for the 1/2 Marathon & 5K? The timing tag will be provided to participants when you pickup your race packet. The tag is attached to the back of the bib & can be discarded after the event.
How will I receive my results? Some results are posted during the race, before awards. Official results will be posted on the Web site on race day, usually around 5:00 p.m.
Can I use my own race chip or tag rather than utilizing the one that is provided? No, for this year's race, we are not equipped to utilize individuals’ personal chips or tags.
Who gets a T-shirt? Only paying participants in the event get t-shirts. The 1/2 Marathon and 5K participants receive technical performance event shirts. The first 1000 registrants and anyone who registers by 2/5/16 is guaranteed a shirt. Registrants on the day of the race may face limited sizes and availability.
What if I need help along the way? A top-notch team of emergency medical professionals provides assistance along the race course. Mobile care and communications units will be located at the start and finish lines, as well as, on the course.
Can I participate in the event with my dog or baby stroller, or can my child bring their scooters/skateboards? Sorry, as much as we like pets and children, the safety of participants is our main concern. Therefore, we do not allow pets, baby strollers, stakeboards or scooters on the course. Of course, service animals and wheelchairs are allowed.
What do I do with my personal items while I’m running? You can leave your items at a drop-off station, located near the start line. Look for the "Drop-off" sign near the registration booth.
What will the temperatures be like? Temperatures are expected to be in the high 50's approaching 60 degrees during the race. Updates are sent by email.
How do I register? You may register online (preferred method until online registration closes on February 18th). In-person registration sites will be announced later (visit Registration for more details). You may also complete an entry form, and mail it to the Jail Break Run along with your registration check or money order. Race day registration, subject to availability, and packet pickup will start on race day at 5:30 a.m.
How much does it cost? The price goes up as we get closer to race day. Click on the registration tab to see the cutoff dates.
Can I register someone else for the race at one of the registration locations? Yes. You will need a fully completed and signed race application form from them, along with their appropriate race fees.
I will be out of town on race day and not able to participate. Can I get my money returned? We appreciate your race registration. As the race brochure states, we are unable to issue refunds. But, you can switch to a virtual racer and still receive a finisher's medal and shirt. See the registration page for details.

Will the race be held if it's raining? The Jail Break Run is a "rain or shine" event. However, if weather conditions threaten the safety of participants, the races would be cancelled. All Jail Break Run participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather, such as in a rain coat or hat. Umbrellas can pose a safety hazard to others. If we have to cancel the event due to weather conditions, no refunds will be available. In that unlikely event, we will extend the deadline for virtual racers to complete and return the results.
What will be provided after the race? Awards ceremony for the 1/2 Marathon and 5K finishers and door prizes for all participants of both races. Refreshments (including Chick-fil-A sandwiches) will be offered free to all participates and volunteers.
