POP-UP races come with no time pressure – your pace is individual to you. Sure we will time your efforts and you can earn a medal for completing but we’re just out here to have fun. You can even walk our races and show up late. But be careful, we’ll be gone 1 hour after the race starts. We’ll post results online. Of course if you finish an hour after the event starts and we’re gone, we’ll just list you as “No Time”.
WILL THE ROUTE BE MARKED?
NOPE! We will have a route map for you to see before the race, but no turn signs, no water stops, no traffic cones or course marshals (Pay attention to traffic!). There will not even be a volunteer on the course. We will have a turn around sign next to a blaze orange traffic cone if it is an out and back course – So pay attention.
WHAT IF I GET LOST?
Call UBER. Do you have a GPS? Download our event app (ABS) Athlete Buddy System. It will show you the route on your smart phone and might help you get back to your car.
WHAT IF I I NEED TO RELIEVE MYSELF?
Yah, that could be a problem. Don’t drink coffee before the run, stop at a gas station, seek out a nice big tree. We will not be ordering port-a-potties, plan in advance! Hopefully there will be one nearby, there usually are a few and we’ll try and put them on our route maps but don’t count on that.
I FINISHED LATE – WHERE DID EVERYONE GO?
We’ll let you know before hand… we’ll be either eating breakfast or having drinks somewhere nearby. Join us!
WHAT ABOUT TIMING & RESULTS?
Results will be posted LIVE on our event web site ( www.5Kevents.org )
WHAT DO THE MEDALS LOOK LIKE?
Every Pop-Run will have the same medal – unless we decide to change it… we like change!
HOW DO YOU DECIDE TO DO A POP-UP RUN?
Mostly because we just like what we do. Usually because a group asks us to or it’s a special day and we want to burn some calories before the big feast like a super bowl game, New Years… that kind of stuff.
