FAQ

Can I bring my (well-behaved) dog?
Unfortunately, no. The path is not super wide and it'll be pretty dark out, so for everyone's safety--no dogs.

Can I bring my kid in a stroller and run?
For the same reasons as above, sorry, no strollers.

What is your refund policy?
The Blerch Holiday Run has a no-refund policy.

Is there a virtual option?
Nope, no virtual option.

If I can't run, can I transfer my bib to someone else?
Sorry, no transfers.
