RULES & FAQ

 

When is this party happening? 

Race day is Sunday, April 23, 2017.  We know its not the "Last Sunday in April"  - but ya can't fight city hall!  Event permits are not issued on the 5th Sunday of any month.  

Parking, Parking, Parking? 

You just read that in the "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha" voice - didn't you?  Check out out the Parking and Directions page here.

Is this a TIMED EVENT? 

Absolutely! We time and score all registered events except the Kids' Fun Run and the Diaper Dash.

I LOST SOMETHING, NOW WHAT? 

If you have lost your parties and belongings, stop by the red Volunteer Registration Tent just east 1st and Steele; on the south side of the street. .

Is there a time limit on the 10-mile race? 

Racers in the 10-mile race need to complete a 15-minute mile pace.  

WHAT ATHLETE SUPPORT DO YOU OFFER?

Water stations are along every race course.  Athletes on the 10-mile course are offered CLIF Shot® Energy Gel at the 6 and 8-mile marks.  CLIF Shot® Energy Gel is an easily digested source of carbohydrates and electrolytes and recommend consumption is one packet 15 minutes before activity, followed by 2-3 packets per hour during activity to help support your needs.  

IS THERE A FIRST AID STATION?

But, of course!  See the Red First Aid tent located at 1st and Steele.

CAN I WEAR HEADPHONES?

We know the right tunes can be the best motivation. We ask that you keep it to a safe volume when on the race course - you should be able to hear people approaching and race officials.

ARE BABY JOGGERS ALLOWED?

You betcha! Just be sure you line up with your stroller or baby jogger at the back of the starting area to avoid injury and help manage traffic flow. Kids in strollers ride free. 

For the safety of all participants at the start of each event, strollers and baby joggers MUST line up at the back of the starting area. We ask that you adhere to this request in order to avoid injury and help manage traffic flow.  Note that kids in strollers ride free.

HOW DO I KNOW MY WAVE?

Look for the pace per mile signs at the start of the event.  Line up with your pack; waves are self-seeding on race day.

CAN MY DOG COME TO THE EVENT?

We love dogs, too, but for the safety of all participants only people are allowed on the racecourse. For your pet's safety and comfort we recommend leaving them at home.

WHAT ABOUT IN-LINE SKATES, BIKES OR SKATEBOARDS

Wheels, runners and crowds don’t blend well.  The Cherry Creek Sneak is a running event, and insurance restrictions require us to exclude these from the event. We ask that you adhere to this request in order to avoid injury and help manage traffic flow.

WHAT IS THE CHILDREN DIAPER DASH?

Kids ages two and under will test their stamina at the Sneak's Diaper Dash. We'll have a padded course for little knees.  To participate, come to the Diaper Dash course located in the Kids' Fun Zone.  No need to register, just come on by!

OH NO, SOMETHING CAME UP!  CAN I GET A REFUND?

Race registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable. We know that life happens and plans can change.  However, pre-event costs mandate this uniform policy. And, it is the only way we can all play fair with our action figures. Be sure to have a buddy swing by your packet pick-up location to receive your spiffy shirt!
